Whateverest: Short Film About An Electronic Music Enthusiast


Released in 2013, Whateverest has to be one of the greatest short films I've ever seen  - focusing on Mariuz, who lives in a remote Norwegian town with a passion for dance music and raving all night in isolation on his home-made designer drug. It's wonderfully shot and directed by Kristoffer Borgli, and, at the time of release, was treated as a genuine documentary - forcing the UK newspaper The Guardian to amend their review on discovering it was fictional.  


It's soundtrack features the iconic Inspector Norse by Todd Terje - which has a particular relevance in the film, as well as music by Norwegian electronic artist Lindstrom. It's a film somehow packed with equal amounts of melancholy, euphoria, humour, despair, and hope, which is well worth 15 minutes of your time. No bad days!
