St. Thomas was one of the most important Norwegian musicians of his generation but also one of the most overlooked and misunderstood. An unflinching honesty characterized both his life and music, resulting in a heartbreaking and authentic combination of melancholy and joy. Through a host of unseen footage and interviews with Hansen's family and close friends director Knights tells the story of a unique artist who died far too young. BURN THE PLACE YOU HIDE is both a candid tribute and an honest portrait of St. Thomas and his music.
Festival Guests: Director Richard Knights and producer Gary Reynolds
