The heyday of hand-painted film posters are over, but in the face of Norwegian film history, it is brought back to life. A 4.5m x 2.50m wide painting was commissioned from one of the last remaining poster painting studios in Mumbai, starting with a sketch that melts Norwegian film history with Bollywood.

The exhibition was opened by the Indian ambassador, hosted by a Bollywood star and received press coverage in the following newspapers:
