An entire week in Holmestrand July 2012
Dag Alveng as the director of photography has finished shooting the first part of the movie "An entire week in Holmestrand". It is written by Per Schreiner, directed by Odd Einar Ingebretsen and produced by Kirsti Marie Hougen.

In the movie we meet three different people in a quiet small town - Holmestrand. Their life and lifestories are presented to us in almost documentary and tableu like interviews and observations and the characters get to talk directly into the camera. Mutual for all of them is that their life is at a standstill and they are frozen in their everyday life. Time is central in the three stories that are presented: Future, or the lack of future, in the quiet smalltown life.

More information about the movie can be found here.
