A story told through movement and cinematography with the aim of highlighting the beauty of emotionality rather than point on the issues that divides and fractures us today.

The merge of an inner emotional battle and a troublesome meeting between the elements Ice, Heat and Water.

Due to toxicity in home-based area. The three are forced to an unknown field. A place of risk. A place where nothing is safe or comfortable.

The following element does not feel relatable at all too them although the mission was to save them from their misery.

Director Statement

Given to my first short film ever created. As a young black creator, director, writer and also movement composer in this environmental issued performance of ours. The inspiration and support came from highly divine energy.

1/3 of our main character Kamilla who brings her energy of fire in motion of playing the role of heat in the project. The two females Paulina and Anaï that were called in as ''extras'' but resulted in just taking over the visuals with an amazing performance having the role of mother wind, calm and hard intentions and allowed me to make the performance body positive and real. Vilja, our body painter and costumer. Vilja, means (power of will) in nordic languages. That is all that needs to be mentioned, this energy flowered the whole project. Frida Radlund that brought an intense and detailed presence to our set design. Anna Oberg whom helped me narrow, tone and shape the main script to its presentation.

All the women who helped me complete this from its imagination to its result. Hence allowed me to be real, to search within and give an honest product to the world. The female support, from all its constructive comments, agenting the project while strengthening our hearts and souls.

ICEOLO is more than a wo(man).
ICEOLO became truth. ICEOLO adressess the important of the heart and soul.
