Commendation of the INTERFILM Jury, Luebeck, 2013

In his film "Chasing the wind", Norvegian director Rune Denstand Langlo tells parts of his personal story in a way that makes it highly understandable and can thus partly be integrated in one’s own biography. Thanks to the expressive imagery of the film and the genuine straight-forwardness of the actors’ performances, elementary themes of life are taken up. Outstanding shots of the surrounding Norvegian landscape underline the story, and their intensity goes largely beyond the local context. The film shows that life is much more than chasing the wind.
