Mormor means “grandmother” in Norwegian. This short film is about a renewed bond that was formed between a granddaughter (Pia) and her mormor one fine summer.

Pia’s parents are too busy with their lives to take care of her when the school’s on a break, so Pia takes a spontaneous vacation to her mormor’s home. Mormor is a widow, and so the young girl is such a delightful presence in her home. They have lots fun and many adventures together until…

This entertaining dark satire is a fulfillment of the requirements of “Film and Television Production” at the University of Bergen, Norway. Mormor is directed by Marthe Igesund and edited by Espen Hobbesland. These young filmmakers successfully combined the aesthetics of postcard landscapes on film with the dark realities of an elder’s life. Compelling with a good sense of humor, Mormor will make you rethink your retirement options and evaluate your relationships with your parents and/or children. This short film is for everyone.
