“My House”, cell animated short film, 10 min
This film is about my mother and me.
In the film I have tried to show some of my experiences in how to deal with the knowledge that I would probably loose my mother to cancer. At the time I started to make the film we recently had been told that her cancer had spread throughout her whole body.
I went on the train to Lidköping (a small Swedish town) to be with her every time she needed to go to chemothearpy, cause she didn´t wanna go alone. My mother never wanted to talk about the disease so we didnt talk about it at all.. We tried to make the best of the situation and have a laugh if we could. We solved crossword puzzles, had coffee and sweets and watched a lot of TV.
In this film I have tried to eplain what was going on on the inside of me. I will never know how my mother felt. She passed away in late December 2003. The film is very personal to me and still a bit hard to watch.
