Produced by Terje Kristiansen, Hud is a 1986 dark drama by director/screenwriter Vibeke Løkkeberg, starring Keve Hjelm and Terence Stamp. Vibeke Løkkeberg also has a lead role in the film.
Hud started filming on the islands outside Bergen in the summer of 1985. The film, budgeted at approximately $2.000.000, became the most expensive Norwegian film at the time.
The story unfolds on a small island, where society is depraved and people have become incestuous. Vibeke Løkkeberg plays the role as a young woman, knowing that her stepfather has given her a child. The child is born deaf, and she refuses to baptize him. When a rich newcomer moves to the island, the stepfather and the priest demands that she marries him and christens the child.
Hud never achieved success in Norway, but was recognized on the international festival circuit, screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival. Løkkeberg had previously visited Cannes with the film Løperjenten in 1983, in the Section Parallèle.
