Click HERE to see original article from Doc NYC


Norwegian director Bjarte Mørner Tveit draws upon a rich personal archive of 8 mm film left by his grandfather Alf, who was secretive about his experiences as a globe-trotting sailor. The exquisite use of family footage calls to mind the work of Doug Block and Alan Berliner.

Examining the reels, Tveit uncovers his grandfather’s experiences in World War II and as a pioneer in the post-war cruise industry, evoking the power of personal documents.
