A companion to Vancouver band We Are The City’s album of the same name. This poetic and visually arresting micro-budget film follows Dagne (Dagny Backer Johnsen), a young woman longing to escape small town life and move to the big city (Bergen). Dagne recalls her most recent memories of the five people who loved her the most, all while experiencing a catastrophic event.
“An evocative slice of life with a remarkably distinctive tone and a sometimes surreal visual sensibility, Violent establishes Huculiak and company as young filmmakers to watch.” - Steve Gravestock, TIFF
