Langt Borta Och Nara
I cannot tell you why I made this film. Not because I do not know quite well, but because I do not want to reveal it. All what I can tell you is n the film. Neither do I want to lie, giving you rational reasons which would be false. I would like you to find in yourself your own reason. This film was necessary for me, for life presented a question to me that had to be answered. It was as in fairy tales : a fight against a dragon, a fight in which I was totally engaged. I could kill the dragon, an dit could devour me. Eventually, I survived. Marianne AHRNE
