    Brief synopsis

    Voice is a cinematic feature documentary about the Norwegian composer and performer Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje. It is not only the portrait of a singular musician, but the film will explore and pay hommage to sound and to the nature of the human voice in all its facets, and will question deep-seated perceptions about our individual role in society. Why do we make art? How do we decide to live? How do we balance our personal life and our innermost dreams with making art, earning money, travelling the world, having a family and raising our children?
