Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art a decade ago, Norwegian filmmaker Gunhild Enger has built up a large body of work across short fiction and experimental documentary. Her two fascinations – cross-cultural misunderstandings and the absurdity of late capitalist consumerism – are explored in a series of humane yet caustically satirical films, shot through with her distinctive honesty and humour. We are delighted to welcome Gunhild back to Glasgow to present her most comprehensive retrospective to date.

Many thanks to the Norwegian Consulate General and Scottish Documentary Institute for supporting this retrospective.
