H for Hand

H for Hand, Anna Ulrikke Andersen (2018), 08:00.
Featuring Håvard Jektnes.
Produced at the Harvard Film Study Center. 

This film focuses on the history of Villa Galeb (1974) in Igalo, Montenegro. Initially built to the former Jugoslavian head of state, Tito, to cater to his needs for physical treatment of chronic illness, the villa is currently owned by the nearby Institute Dr Simo Milosevic JSC Igalo. Filmed using a crutch as a tripod, the shaky footage of the building enhance the physical aspects of filmmaking, as the building’s history of housing a casino, or Norwegian patients undergoing treatment, is unravelled.

This film is a re-working of the multimedia performance Villa Casino (2018).
