Research Interests

Ole Johnny's PhD project focuses on Scandinavian industrial films commissioned by mining companies. Through combining methods of non-theatrical film research and ecocinema approaches, films made post-WW2 are analysed for their aesthetic approach concerning nature and human relations. The development of the representation of the role of mining in the environment is also investigated.
