Video Interview: Tuva Novotny & Pia Tjelta – Blind Spot

A film about the invisible manifestation of pain and sufferance, a good title substitute for Annihilation actress-turned-filmmaker Tuva Novotny‘s debut would be along the notion of bracing for impact. Norwegian actress Pia Tjelta (Eva Sørhaug’s 90 Minutes) becomes the poster person for the entire cycle of complete shock and incomprehension in Blind Spot – a marvel to watch in terms of its visual strategy, but incisively impactful due to how within the layers of bleakness there is a place of renewal. Selected for the Toronto International Film Festival’s Discovery section, the film would travel to San Sebastien for competition, I was curious about how style influenced performance (this was photographed by Jens Assur’s Ravens cinematographer Jonas Alarik) and of course the collaboration between the pair.!23/38707806011_32e3b25d5a_o-0/
