Angry Man

Taking on the difficult topic of domestic violence, Norwegian director Anita Killi explores the dynamics that lead to abuse in families, and throws a healing light on a situation that too often remains hidden in the shadows. 

Filmmaker Notes:

I wanted to create a strong and aesthetic film about a difficult topic – domestic violence – for both children and adults. My goal and hope is that the film will help to break the silence and the secrets surrounding domestic violence. I wanted the film to function both in therapy and teaching situations, but also as a free artistic film, to reach and touch as many as possible.

Animated directly under the camera, with a cut-out and multi-level technique, completely without data manipulation, gives the film a special texture and vulnerability, where small “mistakes” can help to emphasize our unpolished reality and inadequacy.

Not many will initially go to see a serious movie about domestic violence, but when this film is selected for festivals and perhaps gets educational distribution, the message will reach many: “Pass it on!” To achieve this has been very important to me, and I may sometimes have made some pedagogical choices rather than artistic ones to get my message through.

Anita Killi, July 2010
