Animated short, 10 min.
This film is about my mother who died from cancer in 2003. She had just turned 55 years.
I used to take the train to Lidköping, a small town in south of Sweden, to be with her every time she needed to go to chemotherapy.
She was scared of her doctor and didn't wanna go there on her own.
My mother never wanted to talk about cancer or anything regarding her condition really - so we didn't.
We solved crossword puzzles, had coffee, cookies and sweets and watched a lot of TV.
I tried to make her laugh with stupid jokes, I tried to protect her from her doctor and I tried to forget all about my own pain. The pain of watching your mother die.
This film is very personal to me and I still find it difficult to watch.
