Director Paul Tunge groups up with musician Kim Hiothøy to scope out the pretty brutalism of Norway’s elegant church buildings. This comes at a time when faith within the nation “is fading out,” because the documentary filmmaker argues, “and church buildings are status empty.”

Those huge, sculptural areas, constructed throughout the 1960s, are most commonly present in rural spaces and in rolling geographical region. Tunge explains that, along with his movie, he desires to “display those superb structures in a brand new point of view, through strolling round them just like the architects who designed and constructed them.” He concludes: “This movie is a homage to those structures that we must be treasuring for the longer term.”
