Gritt

Gritt

Greek Premiere

Gry-Jeanette left Norway with the dream of becoming an actress. Now, 17 rambling years later, having failed to find either fame in Hollywood or notoriety in Berlin, she’s back, as Gritt. Whilst her old friends from college have established successful careers on the Oslo theater circuit, Gritt is passionate about manifesting a radical collective ritual. But nobody seems to care. When she receives yet another funding rejection, and is thrown out of her apartment, Gritt's situation becomes increasingly desperate – but ready to embark on her mission to bury capitalism and the patriarchy. An astonishing portrait of an artist as an aging woman, which exalts the liberating power of the female gaze to demolish all certainties.
