Experiencing Interruptions?

The house at the end of the forest

Astrid goes to her family's summer cabin, her childhood's safe heaven, after having been brutally attacked by a stranger. Soon the secure and comfortable family reunion Astrid had hoped for turns into a nightmare when the stranger returns with a group of accomplices. What from the start seems to be a matter of home intrusion soon turns into something much darker and surreal.

Director Statement

"The house at the end of the forest" is based on an old script that I wrote as an eleven-year-old. It was meant to be a hobby project shot with 9k euro that I saved up but grew to something much bigger. I've tried to honour the eleven-year-old me as much as possible and I do believe he would've been proud. Going against the norm with an all female cast (even the extras), was of great importance to me. I really do like to highlight why we don't need to follow the norms when telling our stories and "The house at the end of the forest" is my first official step on that road.
