Duration: 56 min

"Salto on a straw mattress" is an intimate documentary about family relations which centres around three generations of women from one particular family. The film is shot in their houses and takes place in Bodø and Fauske in the northern part of Norway. We follow the filmmaker and the women as they reflect on a complex family history of mental health issues, medical use, physical and psychological abuse and in-between conversations we observe them as they go by their everyday life.
