Just before midnight November 12, 2014 Petter Nyquist (37) leaves his safe family life in the Oslo suburb and enters the urban night. He embraces and says his farewells to his girlfriend and two and a half year old daughter. Without money, phone or anything but the clothes he’s wearing, he enters the metro heading downtown. Ahead lays 52 days of homelessness in the capital.

The documentary series «Petter Uteligger» tells the story. Through six episodes we follow Petter until he is reunited with his family on January 2. A film photographer and experienced expedition guy, Petter’s merits include Mount Everest and both poles, yet he is overcome by a feeling of vulnerability as he enters the unknown realm of the Oslo streets at night, a place hundreds call their home, living year after year at the edge of society. His fear drains away as he gets close to, and befriends, addicts and other homeless.

The series is a subjective story about Petter’s experiences as a rough sleeper, but above all it’s an intimate portrait of those who live this way permanently. There are intense and dark moments, but a surprising amount of warmth and humor.

Available for screening: episode 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 in Norwegian without subtitles and episode 3 with English subtitles.
