Ainhoa is 9 years old and she has left home, bringing only her school bag and a Playmobil.
“Ainhoa is a story that, instead of trying to put children to sleep, tries to wake up the adults.”
|AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO:
INDIGO, 19min, Sweden, Romance/Drama
Directed by Paul Jerndal
Two young, lost souls in New York City share a common struggle – they are stuck in lives they do not feel they belong. She is an adored actress and he, a bike messenger. On the outside they seem like each others opposite, but on the inside they are the same- dehumanized by an internal loneliness that alienates them from feeling alive.
“With the Indigo project I wanted to encourage everyone feeling alienation on the inside. It’s all about that inside. And to make a choice. To choose to reflect, to try to get perspective of your own life to from within.”
I’m so proud and grateful of Indigo’s journey and everyone involved. To be a part of the awesome campaign #Otillrocklig was a perfect way for Indigo to play an important role in today’s society with all demands we have on our selves. For Cecilia and I to share our personal stories was of course scary – but we hope that doing this will encourage others to start talk about their inside, to start reflect and stand still for a moment.
This film did not have any sponsors or funding – it has all been a passion project. The dream that came trough would not have been possible without all of you guys who contributed in one way or another. LOVE to all of you!
Filled with new energy from this journey I’m right now working on new film projects with similar goals; It my belief that we all need have one eye looking outside and one eye focusing inside.” // PAUL JERNDAL
