Directed by: Anna-Sofia Nylund
Produced by: Stefan Gustafsson/Redneck productions/Arcada
Cinematography: Stefan Gustafsson

Edited by: Nina Ijäs
Music by: Ludvig Allén

Recently a group of people with an alternative lifestyle have moved to the small village Uddebo. The people in the municipality are shocked by the newcomerʼs unorthodox life style. Amongst factories, sport clubs, and robotic lawn mowers itʼs considered a bit odd to make a living of art, gather food from dumpsters and arrange human snail races. On top of that the new arrivals have decided to restore the old ramshackle sewing factory in to a cultural center. But in the end, maybe everyone is a bit odd in the cotton-padded world.

Directed by: Anna-Sofia Nylund / Mark Middlewick
Produced by: Anni Kotkamaa
Cinematography: Barry Buttress
Sound design: Sarah Faye de Muynk
Edited by: Anna-Sofia Nylund
Music by: Barry Buttress, Marilyn Middlewick

Crime is one of the biggest problems of the apartheid-plagued South Africa, and also one of the biggest reasons for leaving the country. Also Mark Middlewick is tired of living among electric fences, bars and alarms in his house in an upper class villa neighbourhood. He yearns to leave abroad, but is the constant state of fear just an illusion, or is life in Johannesburg really as dangerous as it feels inside his own bubble?

2009 A Kosovo Fairytale

Produced by: Tapiwa Chipfupa Arcada/Afda/Wits
directed by: Anna-Sofia Nylund, Samantha Nell, Mark Middlewick
Written by: Samantha Nell, Mark Middlewick
Sound design by: Ludvig Allén
Music by: Ludvig Allén
Edited by: Mark Middlewick
Animation: Samantha Nell

A Kosovo Fairytale is a touching message for the little brother, so that he could understand the tough decision his family made – they fled to Finland, but he was left in Kosovo. The skilled animation tells the story of a happy family in the midst of war. Even if Finland is good, the family’s worry for the one left behind does not ease. The film illustrates collective pain and provides an intimate picture of one of Kosovo’s numerous human tragedies
