Director Statement

Greenlandic first novel was in 1914 and only few published each year, my experience as a highschool teacher is that the young ones only want to see movies, tiktok or youtube. And its fine, but our litterature seems so outdated that I decided to adapt from a known novel to a short film. To catch the young audiences curiosity and this is the first adaptation from a greenlandic novel ever in Greenland. So my hope is that young film makers can be inspired to carry on the greenlandic literature treasure into their own platform of SoME.
