Watch the film


World renowned for his painting The Scream – now a universal symbol of anguish, Edvard Munch is a painter of emotions, which he was able to express with unparalleled power.

The film will explore his work through the prism of nature. It nurtured his entire oeuvre, first literally, through the Norwegian landscapes of his earliest paintings; then symbolically, as an expression of human feelings, and finally, metaphorically, as a representation of the life cycle.
