Jens Bjørneboe & det ondes problem

79 minutes 2020 7.2

"I do not think that man is evil or that man is good - I think that man is partly evil and partly good", said Jens Bjørneboe.

The history of bestiality is considered by many to be the main work of Jens Bjørneboe, and is also the basis for the conversation this film is based on. The paradox "problem of evil" is the theme when two of Norway's foremost philosophers and three of our central authors meet.

The conversation about evil we must constantly relate to - generation after generation. The problem of evil is particularly relevant to our own time by virtue of the unpredictable political, religious and environmental complexities we have never seen before. The film presents in a light and poetic way current contemporary challenges, and helps us to be on guard against the many faces of evil.
