Director Statement

There is something very scary about making movies.
You come up with an idea, a fantasy of something you imagine. But from the moment this idea leaves your head and starts to take form, it changes and transforms into something different than what you have imagined. Suddenly, it is not a fantasy anymore, but something concrete; it is no longer only in your head, but rather something that comes to life, captured by the camera with real people. You feel that you lose control of your fantasy and that it’s not your own anymore.
There is something scary and tragic about this process, but it is inevitable of course.
And for me this is my biggest challenge when making films – to let go, to lose control, to find things I didn’t expect to find before, and to see my film come alive on its own.
I think this fear is what my film, “The Egg”, is about. It is about desiring something so badly, you lose touch with reality; it is about what happens when our fantasies meet reality. And it is about letting go.
