Sniffer

Norway, 2005 (MIFF 2006, Fiction Shorts)

Director: Bobbie Peers

Sniffer

Winner of Norway's first Palme d'Or at Cannes this year. In a society where everyone has the ability to fly, the citizens anchor themselves to the ground via ""gravitation boots"". Devoid of sunlight and the open sky, the members of society go about their routine without any hope of personal gratification. One day, however, a man decides he has had enough attempt to challenge the status quo. He quits his job, loosens his bindings, and literally takes off.
