From the Balcony takes you on a journey through one year in the life of Ole and his family, living in Brochmannsgate 12A, Oslo, Norway, Europe, Earth, Universe. What if you would take a break from the rollercoaster called life and just sit and ask yourself: how did I get here? Do you live alone, with a family, or roommates? In a small village on the countryside or maybe in a big, foreign city? Was this the place you were supposed to be by now? And how do you keep going, even if you know that at some point the sun will burn out and everything around you will be gone forever? Ole Giæver takes you through a year of everyday life in Western Europe with all its holidays, memories and fantasies, questions big and small. From the Balcony is a time capsule filled with all these moments and feelings. It invites you to think about your own life and choices. What does it mean to be human today?

The film will be screened in the original language, with English and Hungarian subtitles.
