The people of the village would tell him tales of a mermaid, who had no choice but to abandon her son. Once we arrived on location, we connected instantly with Man, a boy who had a story very close to our vision. Son of Samila became a hybrid film, a mix between fiction and reality, just like our character’s world.”

In 1998, anthropologist Barbara Hoffman worked with a team of Maasai junior elders in Kisamis, a community in the Rift Valley of southern Kenya. All members of the team stressed the importance of the stages of the life cycle and the resulting changes to their status as they progress from children to adult Maasai elders. A male's transition from one step to another is celebrated as his masculine character is molded, honed and refined. Some of these stages are marked by ritual or ceremony, including shaving the hair, circumcision, and marriage. Shows an actual circumcision ceremony.

Damer. 1997.

NO. Det kan v?re lurt a forberede seg pa puberteten nar den kan komme hver dag som helst. Det mener ihertfall de to guttene i denne filmen. A melde seg pa kurs i synkronsvomming skulle vel gi en rimelig god sjanse for a treffe damer. Men vet gutta hva et slik mote kan utsette dem for-sann rent folelsesmessig? Det blir litt sterkt for dem i denne sorgmuntre historien.

Venus vs. Me. 2010.

Marie is growing up but she mixes up growing and illness. Desperately she tries to handle her complex thoughts and doubts, unable to share any of them with her young and absent mother. Still, there seems to be one place where Marie finds solace, the swimming pool. Image and sound emerge us under water, in a deafness that individualizes colors and sounds as if we are listening to them for the first time. What's interesting about this short is that it doesn't really follow a straight and classical narrative but a puzzled and kaleidoscopical insight into the main character's head. Sound and image are used to enter Marie's complex inner world. Emotions fade giving the impression of reconciliation. The director manages to show us a powerful, unique and touching insight into the complexity of childhood. A very clever and poetic short!
