    The story of Ophelia in Hamlet and the painting of her by Sir John Everett Millais moves me deeply because of the beauty combined with sadness. The dead and broken leaves around the girl in the video is to give the impression of the river where Ophelia fell into while picking flowers. The book said that she slowly drowned, singing all the while and I imagined what she would have sung about and sang my version of it thinking of her sad short life. I portrayed the young girl's death using beautiful images but with a sad and chilling undertone.

  • The Longer Route

    Available from 2021/04/14 00:00 CEST
    to 2021/04/21 00:00 CEST

    Carrie’s world is a nasty one, full of low-life men. First among these is her amoral father who has no qualms at all about exploiting her in the worst possible way. So it’s some relief when Carrie heads off for the weekend with the lovely Eric. He’s handsome, French, attentive, she likes him a lot – and the feeling is mutual. A little romance isn’t too much to ask, is it? But nothing in this murky drama, shot in black and white, is ever that simple. Dangers lurk in the shadows, adding to the suspense, and we’re never quite sure who can be trusted.

  • The Haven

    Available from 2021/04/11 00:00 CEST
    to 2021/04/18 00:00 CEST

    The Haven takes place in the communal laundry house; typical to Swedish housing complexes and a kind of frame of mind for ordinary life. The laundry house is not only a warm and temporary safe space, it is also a place where it is possible to be somebody else, for a couple of hours. In an uncertain and vanishing existence, simple everyday routines - like doing laundry - becomes a way to hold on, and to belong.
