Snow White Cologne is a visual poem, post-rationalising the struggle and recovery of my younger sister's drug addiction. There's love and loss, good and bad.

Director Biography - Amanda Eliasson

Amanda Eliasson (b.1990) is a Swedish animation director who recently graduated with an MA in animation from the Royal College of Art, London. Now she’s working as a freelance animation director in the UK.

I’ve always loved art, never knowing it could actually be a career. I was going to study to be an air traffic controller as I secretly applied to a foundation year at Beckmans College of Design, Stockholm, and got accepted. At Beckmans I discovered animation and realised it was much more interesting for me to be able to make my illustrations and paintings move. Since then I’ve developed a deep interest in making flat images transport the viewer into a three dimensional space.

I would say my style is playful and naive in contrast to the difficult social subjects I address in my films.

Director Statement

Snow White Cologne, my graduation film from the Royal College of Art 2017, is made out of 3047 hand painted frames. The film is based on a true story about my sister who used to be a drug addict. I wanted to tell her story in a non judgemental way, which is why the film tackles the difficult subject 'drug addiction' in a poetic and emotional manner rather than giving the viewer straight facts about the problematics of the disease.
