Director Statement

I see myself as a typical atheist. I am convinced that life ends when it ends, with nothing on “the other side”. And where I’m from most people share this belief. But perhaps it’s time to view death in a different way? Death is a taboo — something we don't really talk about. Especially not the youth. Understandably, because death is associated with grief, pain and difficult emotions. But maybe we can turn the inevitable to something more uplifting than black clothes and silence in the church room?

With this film I want people to reflect on death. Maybe provoke a bit? Or at least get people to break with the taboo and start talking about the things we don’t like to talk about. Death is surprising and unpredictable, and this film is as well.
