Sonja

Sonja Henie was one of the founders of Henie Onstad Kunstsenter.

The story about Sonja Henie is presented with a new chapter with the feature film Sonja. Based on Sonja Henie´s bigraphical history, it presents several myths about Sonja´s life. Directed by Anne Sewitsky and with Ine Wilmann in the lead, the film premieres on Norwegian movies December 25.

What the film does not present, is the turn the true story about Sonja Henie takes when she marries Niels Onstad. With a keen motivation and a special ability to communicate with artists, Sonja Henie starts a new carreer as an patron of the arts. As with everything else she has done in her life, she again presents her talent and skills and creates what is the foundation of Henie Onstad Kunstsenter.

On the occasion of the film, the Henie Onstad has created a special exhibition presenting, clips, skates and costumes from the film together with archive material from Sonja Henie's own archive.

In addition, the great exhibition made on the occasion of Høvikodden's 50th anniversary is also on display: Turn and Face the Strange, which presents the Henie Onstad collection focusing on Sonja Henie's and the art center's history.
