2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jakob Rørvik’s Thomas in Superposition

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jakob Rørvik’s Thomas in Superposition

Much like Brit filmmaker Daniel Mulloy, Norwegian filmmaker Jakob Rørvik has “owned” the short film space for over a decade now landing accolades from all the prestigious film fests. We got to meet the filmmaker after his sejour at the 2018 Sundance Screenwriters Lab (was known as Thomas in 10 Dimensions then) – so Thomas in Superposition has its roots there. Production began around the month of February this year with players Arthur Berning, Filip Mathias Eide, Silje Storstein onboard and as production wrapped unleashed another short in Apocalypse Norway – it can be found here. UPDATE: This project is still in post production.

Gist: Quantum physicist Thomas believes he is about to crack the code of the universe, but he can’t seem to untangle the mysteries of his own life, even as the people he loves most—his young son, ex-wife, and mother—all try to bring him back to earth.

Production Co./Producers: Petter Onstad Løkke, Synnøve Hørsdal.
