The Cleveland International Film Festival promotes artistically and culturally significant film arts through education and exhibition to enrich the life of the community.
Run Time: 100 minutes
Trine, a budding Norwegian artist, has come up with the perfect idea for her breakthrough exhibition. Nine months pregnant, Trine will video stream the birth in a cage in front of a live audience while she wears a wig and Victorian-era garb. How could she not be catapulted to the top of the art world? Agnes will be Trine’s midwife, and until the baby is born, Agnes hires Trine for part-time factory work. But Agnes has a secret, and, alone in her office she pines to see her estranged son, Kåre. Kåre is a rapidly rising author who’s splitting his time between his wife and his girlfriend, Sigrid, who’s half his age. Yngvild Sve Flikke’s zany triptych of three unrelated women and their happenstance encounters is brimming with vibrant characters and unconventional wisdom. The empowerin WOMEN IN OVERSIZED MEN’S SHIRTS is a bright comedy that doesn’t need men to tell its story. (In Norwegian with subtitles) –C.P.
