Director Statement

'Copenhagen Central Station' is a special film to me, both due to the fact that it was my film-debut, and to the fact that it was a surprise wedding anniversary gift for my parents' silver wedding this January. I have modernized and adapted their first encounter for the screen, and the film is quite true to the original story with a few added artistic liberties. One of them being my little personal statement about the current public behavior of individual isolation through screens and devices, which stands in contrast to my parents' story. It was important for me to romanticize accidental romance and emphasize the importance of taking unorthodox chances in the public space.
