Read more on our production page

Mannen fra Snåsa ("Doing Good" in English) is a feature-length documentary about the Norwegian healer Joralf Gjerstad, also known at Snåsamannen. Over the last 65 years tens of thousands have traveled to Snåsa in hopes of getting help from the healer. In the documentary we join film maker Margreth Olin as she follows sessions with Joralf Gjerstad and 22 new clients. We get to meet people whom for some reason have been given up by the system – or who have given up themselves. The man from Snåsa is a film about the importance of hope in human life.


The film is produced by Speranza Film AS. All picture post production took place here at Shortcut Oslo. Raymond Gangstad did the grade, Christian Vårdal the online and Terje Gillebo did the mastering.


The post-production was supervised by our producer Espen Skjetne and production manager Tom Joelsen.


Cinema release 22nd of January 2016.
