Sick of Myself

Syk Pike | Kristoffer Borgli | NO/SE 2022 | 95 Min | DCP

As her boyfriend Thomas is about to get his big break as a contemporary artist, Signe plunges into a crisis. To be acknowledged and recognized, she takes drastic measures. In this preposterous satire, Kristoffer Borgli unleashes the whole potential of the social media’s attention economy, cross-breeding it with a potent critique of a society increasingly interested in the surface. An excellent Kristine Kujath Thorp shines in the challenging lead of this exceedingly painful cringe fest, which premiered in Cannes this year.

Kristoffer Borgli
