Jimmy Young (2007)by De Utvalgte. The character of Jimmy Young was created by actor Torbjørn Davidsen and video artist Joachim Hamou during three days of work.
With Hamou behind the camera and Davidsen in the role of Jimmy, they embarked on a reverse educational journey which came to last for ten years. Equipped with fake press cards the journey went via the Film Festival in Cannes to the spiritual leader of the Sufis in Egypt, to beggars and rich men in New York, to shipwrecked Inuits and derelict soldiers in Greenland. Assisted by a movie camera and a microphone Jimmy became a draw for young and old people who, eager to expose themselves, threw themselves into his story.
