Everything Becomes So Much More is a new short film by Sille Storihle. The film follows the lives of three teenage girls living in Oslo who have all been diagnosed with ADHD. Each of the three presents their own experiences and perceptions, often recounting stories of conflict and the breaking of social conventions. As rates of ADHD in Europe continue to rise – doubling in the past decade in the case of Norway – the film touches on the sociological aspect of the diagnosis in relation to changing cultural norms and suggests the possibility of a different, more subjective, understanding.
Sille Storihle (b. 1985, Norway) is an artist living in Berlin and Oslo and working with moving images and text. She holds a BFA from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art and an MA in Aesthetics and Politics from CalArts. Her central areas of interest include gender politics, nationalism and history.
