Spellbound (Bergtagen)

Original Title BERGTAGEN

Duration 8 mins
Director/Script Solveig Nordlund
The only sounds heard are messages on the answering machine that belongs to a man not seen. Parents, relatives, friends, his boss and work mates wonder where he is. As the film progresses these telephone messages add more and more understanding. The physical images become more and more clear – even painfully clear – displaying a harsh scene where drugs are taken. The syringes, trash and trade reveal a trap that will swallow all those who venture there.
