On this page you will find various projects I have directed during my studies as a bachelor in film directing at Stockholm University of the Arts. Due to legal reasons the projects will be published at a later date.
André, a drag queen, comes home after a long night out. With the music still buzzing in his head he is restless and don't want the night to end. Instead of going to bed he picks up the phone and calls a stranger, inviting him to his fantasy world.
I wanted to create a short film that explore queer expression and the loneliness many queer people feel. The film also focuses on themes such as sexual violence, wherein this film the man on the other side of the phone's desires becomes more and more explicit and violent. Together with the actors we worked on exploring intimacy through a phone and making sure to create a safe space for the actors and the crew. My goal for the film was to be unapologetic with what I wanted to tell and how I told it. Queer stories still don't have a certain space in Swedish cinema and I want to put our experiences in the limelight and make space for queer films.
Wall to Wall (2021)
A seemingly nice couple has just moved in to the neighborhood. They are quiet, helpful, kind and don't make a lot of fuzz. Just your average couple.
Told from the perspective of the neighbors "Wall To Wall" portraits the couple next door in a broad spectrum where every neighbor has their own perception of whats happening in the couples apartment.
"Wall To Wall" is a short film based on research where we through a documentary process looked deeper into domestic violence through interviews with survivors, professors and organizations. We wanted to focus the project on the bystander, especially the neighborhood. What we found in our research is that many people thought they would intervene if they heard something, but few thought any of the neighbors would do the same for them.
