The 9th Nordic Documentary Film Festival (NORDOX)
Beijing Station (From Nov.8th to Nov. 15th)
The Nordic Documentary Film Festival (NORDOX) will celebrate its 9th anniversary this year. We are pleased to notice that NORDOX has already become a platform for Chinese documentary lovers to watch and discuss Nordic documentaries.
NORDOX 2014 will start its two-week Beijing Station showing activity in MOMA Broadway Cinematheque on Nov.8th, right after the Guangzhou station’s showing activity. During the film festival, UCCA Art Museum will show 14 documentaries from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. In the meantime, we will show several documentaries in Tsinghua University and Beijing Foreign Studies University, providing college students with an opportunity to communicate with some documentary directors.
Documentary is like the family photo album of a country. This year our focus of the festival films is Nordic contemporary life. In Bravehearts, five teenagers who dreamed of changing the world were changed by the brutal reality. In ASH, the director followed the huge impact of the volcanic eruption on farmers’ live. In Nowhere Home, you will see how teenagers struggled for their dignity. In addition, we will bring you Mercy Mercy-A PORTRAIT OF A TRUE ADOPTION, which focuses on adoption across countries, and many other excellent documentaries including the one which won Academy Award–Searching for Sugarman.
