Sick of Myself(bcSpecial)
In an era where everyone can enjoy 15 minutes of fame, what comes next if the quarter is no longer sufficient to satisfy the insatiable lust for fame? Signe and Thomas are in an unhealthy, competitive relationship that takes a vicious turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. Aiming to attract attention, Signe makes a desperate attempt to regain her status by creating a new persona hell-bent, trading her natural beauty for a sympathy-guaranteed distorted face. Oscillating between idealistic simulacra and dissatisfying reality, what awaits Signe?
Premiered in Cannes Film Festival Un Certain Regard, Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli’s (Dream Scenario) first feature satirizes the absurdity of this narcissism to death epoch from a jet-black humorous perspective.
