2016 - Ongoing
This is an ongoing documentary project about growing up in a small community, in a deeply religious but loving family, on a windswept island off the west-coast of Norway. It's a story about a girl eventually moving further and further away from her family, desperate to distance herself from the place where she was born and raised. But more than anything, it's a personal journey of coming back, after years of therapy and living abroad, trying to look at the place with fresh eyes – without repressing the bad memories that comes with it. This is my attempt at embracing the inevitable fact that some things will forever be connected. Maybe I'll never know who I really am. But this is definitely where I'm from.
