Ja Sägarna (2012)
The film was made as a proposition and a proof of my skills as a "regular" film director. The idea was to make this little film as part of an application for a bigger film. The major Danish film producer was never intressted in the end.
In any case this short film proved to be real fun to do and I hope to be able to work with this crew again.
The text is based on a old idea that never came further either called "ja sägarna" meaning “the yes-sayer".
Basically the scene is a group of people meeting up reading one of Berthold Brecht learning play “the yes-sayer” from 1930. After a while the group have a major conflict based on the moral and economic discrepancy within the reading group.
Unfortunately the film is in Danish/Swedish only...
