A conversation with Kristine Kujath Thorp and Henrik Bjelland, lead actors of the film The North Sea, presented in the official selection of the 2021 Rome Film Fest. They talk here about their experience of starring in this Norwegian disaster movie directed by John Andreas Andersen. They also share some of their thoughts and concerns regarding the environmentalist issues that this film touches on.

The North Sea: On Christmas Eve in Norway, in 1969, the government made an announcement that would change the history of the country forever: one of the largest deposits of oil in the world had been discovered in the North Sea. It would be dubbed Ekofisk, and launch an unprecedented financial scramble. From that day, fifty years of experience in the oil field has provided us with abundant opportunities, but it is likely that we still haven’t fully understood the real environmental fallout from this discovery and subsequent operations extracting oil from the North Sea. Should the exploit have a future, or need we consider that fifty years ago, one of the most dangerous weapons of mass destruction in the world was discovered?
