The Winter I Knew is a film about the harsh and yet so beautiful season, that is significantly changing due to climate change. As the Arctic environment is losing its defining features like snow and the cold, cold-adapted animal species are losing their natural habitat and we humans living in the Arctic are losing an essential part of who we are.
In my complementary film, The Winter I Knew – the Story, I share my journey making the main feature and my thoughts on this loss. Coming tomorrow, Monday 22.11.2021. Stay tuned!

A short video compilation of Fall in New York City through my eyes. My favorite season in one of my favorite cities. Sites I stopped by include Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo, the Battery, Staten Island ferry, and of course, Central Park. Also had the pleasure to make this edit with one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite composers–Dwell by Tony Anderson (via Musicbed).

A collage of time-lapses taken over the last years. All taken at different locations around Norway. All the way from Tromsø to Oslo to Bergen and between.
Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and deep coastal fjords. Oslo, the capital, is a city of green spaces and museums. Preserved 9th-century Viking ships are displayed at Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum. Bergen, with colorful wooden houses, is the starting point for cruises to the dramatic Sognefjord. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking and skiing, notably at Lillehammer’s Olympic resort.
Scientists and doctors have observed for thousands of years that some diseases, like polio and influenza, rise and fall with the seasons. But why? Ongoing research in animals and humans suggests a variety of causes, including changes in the environment (like pH, temperature, and humidity) and even seasonal and daily changes to our own immune systems. Figuring out those answers could one day make all the difference in minimizing the impact of infectious disease outbreaks—such as COVID-19.
From a The Economist online article (March 23, 2020):
In this year of coronavirus contagion, however, the prospect of cheek-by-jowl hanami parties has alarmed the authorities. Tokyo’s government has urged people to steer clear of gatherings “that involve food and drink” to slow the spread of infection. To little effect.
EVERY MARCH and April trees along the banks of the Meguro river in Tokyo fleetingly erupt with fat pink and white cherry blossoms, heralding the arrival of spring. For a few glorious weeks, millions of people across the city flee the drudgery of the office and factory to spend an hour or two in places like this, eating and drinking under falling sakura petals. It is a ritual with ancient roots, with a chapter devoted to it in “The Tale of Genji”, a tenth-century work that is perhaps the world’s first novel.
