Description

Screening with Forecast Public Art short film Dodecahedron, April 22.

Letter to the King weaves together portraits focusing on the plight of five Kurdish immigrants in Norway. Given permission to leave their refugee camp and travel to Oslo, five individuals take advantage of the opportunity, each with a purpose in mind. They will be confronted by their destinies as they discover happiness, suffer humiliation, find love, and seek revenge.

Their five stories are bound together by a letter, written by eighty-three year old Mirza, intended for the King of Norway.

Dodecahedron is a short documentary which follows the process of artist Jess Hirsch in conceiving and executing her "Peace Haven" project, constructing a small, twelve-surfaced geometric structure to serve as a greenhouse and meditation space for the residents of the Black Dog Hill Shelter for women and children in rural Minnesota.
