This programme of short films, curated by Hanne Hammer Stien (and produced by Atelier Nord), focuses on works by artists who question the governance of natural resources in Northern Norway and the High North. These eight artists attempt to approach a range of issues from different and unfamiliar viewpoints, with the subject matter they tackle including conflict over rights to the land and the sea, as well as climate change and the impact local interventions can have on a global scale.

There will be a post-screening Q&A with the programme curator, Hanne Hammer Stien, and the co-directors of Hollow Earth, Tanya Busse & Emilija Skarnulyte.
