The Norwegian animated short-film 'Sinna mann' (Angry man) has been selected for Official Competition at this year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Sinna mann is a film about secrets that shouldn’t be secret. When the mommy-fish dies, Boj has had enough, and gets power from his own fantasy to go further. The film is based upon the book with the same name by Gro Dahle and Svein Nyhus. The director is Anita Killi, an animator and filmproducer running her own production company, Trollfilm AS, at a farm in Dovre, Norway. Killi graduated from the National College of Art and Design with main subject animation (multiplan technique) in 1996.
The film Sinna mann has won several awards in Norway, Europe and the US in 2009 and 2010, and the film will participate in different festivals around the world in 2010.
