Autumn Fall

The dramedy “Autumn Fall” — set in beautiful Oslo — tells the story of Ingvld, who works as a lightning technician at the National Theatre but dreams of writing for the stage. Somewhat complicating her ambition: She can't stand actors. Invld still manages to entangle herself with two thespians — one a notorious hell-raiser — and embarks on an exciting, scandalous, and ultimately life-altering journey. Director Jan Vardøen made his well-regarded feature debut with “Heart of Lightness” in 2014, but he’s not quite your typical filmmaker: Trained as wooden-boat builder, he was formerly a renowned restaurateur and chef, designing and building his own and others’ restaurants. A true renaissance man, Vardøen has also written critically hailed and commercially successful books, both fiction and nonfiction, and recorded five albums as a singer-songwriter.
