This debut feature by the Danish filmmaker tells the story of Marie who lives in a small fishing town in Denmark with her invalid mother and a father. She’s attractive, and soon experiences all the sexism and restrictions of small-town morality. Then, the growing pains of a healthy, spirited young girl start taking a scary physical turn. We witness one of the most graceful transformations into a werewolf - and Marie embraces her new identity. We start seeing her mother’s unspecified illness in a new light, and the measures taken by her protective father, and the nature of violence and aggression in quiet, religious societies.

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
