The movie had parallel premiere screenings on Tromsø’s digital platform and at the Winter Cinema, located in the city’s main square. An audience of 200, the maximum capacity allowed in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions, watched the outdoor screening. Director Flikke, two of the actors and other crew members were present at the wintry premiere in Tromsø.
Festival and programme director Lisa Hoen said, “Being able to have a physical premiere of our opening film at our Winter Cinema really helped kick off the festival week. The combination of outdoor and digital screenings proved to be a good recipe for getting the festival vibe going in Tromsø, although we had to cancel all of the planned theatre screenings.”

It presents a penetrating look at expectations, roles and social situations, analysing male roles in contemporary Norway.
Recently implemented restrictions on indoor cinemas meant that the festival had to cancel all of its indoor screenings. “Considering the circumstances, with the current COVID-19 restrictions, we really feel that we still had a proper festival with world premieres, and combining online screenings with outdoor screenings at our Winter Cinema,” sums up Hoen.
