[on The Wave (2015)] This [the tsunami] will actually happen there one day. There is this crack in the mountainside out in the fjord, and it keeps expanding each year and at some point it will cause a huge rockslide into the fjord and they will have ten minutes before the wave reaches Geiranger. So we wanted to stay true to the facts - to what geologists think will be the facts one day. And, of course, as a bonus it is one of the most beautiful places in Norway, so I thought the contrast between the spectacular nature and the destructive forces that it can cause made for some powerful images.
