In 1969, the Norwegian government announces their discovery of one of the world’s largest oil fields in the neighboring North Sea, launching a prosperous period of offshore drilling. 50 years later, the environmental consequences begin to manifest – a crack has opened on the ocean floor, causing a rig to collapse. A team of researchers, including submarine operator Sofia (Kristine Kujath Thorp), rushes in to search for the missing and assess the cause of the damage, but what they discover is that this is just the start of a possible apocalyptic catastrophe. As rigs are evacuated, Sofia’s loving companion Stian (Henrik Bjelland) becomes trapped in the depths of the sea, and Sofia must dive in to rescue him. THE BURNING SEA is the latest disaster epic from the team behind THE QUAKE and THE WAVE.
The Norwegian starlet has appeared in several films like Under Bølgerne, Overs Skyerne, A Report on the Party and the Guest, Betrayed and last year in Ninjababy. Television series appearances include Vild Sommer, Blank and Noget om Emma. A few years ago she worked as a production designer for two seasons of Doggystyle and music video, Nina Massara: Postcard to New Orleans.
