Arne Treholt was convicted to 20 years' imprisonment for espionage in 1985. He served eight years
in jail before being pardoned, after which he moved abroad. For the third time he is now trying to get his
case reopened together with his new attorney, Harald Stabell. They wish to find out whether the process
against Treholt during the cold war bears close scrutiny.
The seminar Work in Progress discusses a work process that has been under way since 2005. Clips from
the film will be shown, and concrete examples will be used. Marianne Kleven returns to the idea stage and
talks about the financing of the project and her personal experiences with a case about which many people
hold strong opinions.
