Research documentaries: THE LOFOT HORSE + SAVING A KILLING MACHINE
SAVING A KILLING MACHINE
(14 min, 2018)
Director: Trym Haakon Aasberg // Photographer: Daniel Øverland // Editing/sound: Robin Alexander Buringrud Helvik
Sharks have an undeserved bad reputation. Sharks kill only 4 humans annually, while humans kill over 100 million sharks every year. If this continues, sharks can be extinct in the next few decades. This documentary is about Sharklab-Malta, who works voluntarily to maintain the population of sharks, skates and rays in the Mediterranean Sea.
LOFOTHESTEN - EN HESTERACE DER UDDØDE I 1899
(33 min, 2019)
Director: David Krøyer // Producer: Alexander K. Brucki
In 1899 the last living specimen of a Lofot horse dies. The carcass is sent to a museum, where it is taxidermized and put on display. 119 years later, this horse – the only known relics of its breed – needs restoration, and that process evokes a filmmaker’s curiosity and wonder. By trailing the tracks of the Lofot horses of the past, the audience is led through various museums, people's workplaces and homes. Every new encounter introduces new leads in the pursuit of this extinct horse breed’s past.
The documentaries will be screened in the University Aula on Monday 30 September at 14:00. Read more about the programme in the University Aula // Book tickets to screenings in the University Aula
