OSLO / MEDELLIN Finn E. Bugge's next film - this time he turns the camera on himself.

OSLO / MEDELLIN is in the making. The film is a personal essay film, and combines numerous strategies to form a cinematic self-portrait that continues the themes of belonging and home.

Film Reviews

Sandy W. Coleman from California

“What a film. You captured the essence of our past lives as we move forward on our path. Who are we? A collection of our past, current experiences and dreams. Thank you.”

Hiro Narita (ASC - American Society of Cinematographers)

“Dear Lina demonstrates his understanding of cultures beyond borders in cinematic language that implicitly expresses human emotions.”

Anthony Romero of DaCast

“I must say that I was blown away by the cinematography and use of colors through out. So as a film buff, kudos for making a stellar product.”
