A day in the life of Alfred by Øivind Hovland
A Day in the Life of Alfred tells a story of alienation in the big city. A dark tale of a lonely man’s struggle to survive and maintain controln his life. Powerful and dramatic images draw you to walk in the shoes of our hero. Feel the effects of this intense, yet monotonous and routine-ridden existence for yourselves. Watch as Alfred balances on a knife edge, while he desperately struggles to repress a childhood incident that would dominate his life forever!
A Day in the Life of Alfred’s crimson everyman becomes an increasingly tormented figure, with his need for daily routine all that justifies his solitary existence. But perhaps what’s most tragic about Alfred is just how familiar his perpetual suffering feels.
