"I am a dreamer and I sometimes live so much in my dreams that I get very disappointed when I find out which world I am in". Thomas Hansen - 2001
As the line between what 'is' and 'isn't' authentic becomes increasingly difficult to define, the conspicuous absence of filter between the life and music of Thomas Hansen led to both critical acclaim and personal tragedy.
Thomas Hansen was one of the most original and painfully honest voices in Norwegian pop music. Haunted by the debilitating effects of mental illness, his music, both joyous and melancholy, was rooted in a place of heartfelt candor, an open invitation to the world of a uniquely talented and often very troubled artist.
Filmed with unprecedented access to unreleased archives and interviews with the musicians, friends and family closest to him, Burn The Place You Hide is the first time the extraordinary life of Thomas Hansen has been fully documented.
