The Art of Negative Thinking + Small Talk
Hilarious black comedy The Art of Negative Thinking is one of LIFF’s most requested repeats. Geirr is severely disabled and impotent after a car accident. Given his isolation, weapons fixation, self-medication and limitless bitterness, his girlfriend Ingvild has had enough. As a last resort she invites over a municipal positivity group to spend a day with him. Geirr refuses to see anything as positive and is soon joined by the rest of the group as they enter a downward spiral of anguish and desperation. Screening with the equally hilarious Norwegian short Small Talk.
