About This Screening
In her films, Eva Marie Rødbro has documented the restlessness, fragility and self-destructive feeling of invincibility of youth and early adulthood. Her work is an extremely style-conscious and intelligent study of a lifestyle and an environment, where pure excess is elevated to an existential principle.
Through subtly glancing shots taken at oblique angles and in brief bursts, I Touched Her Legs reaches directly into the soul of this small band of friends and explains everything that is important without a single dull expository declaration on their circumstances. Rødbro creates a deft and skillful montage in which animals, insects children and adolescents all inhabit an environment easily and warmly shared. Fuck You Kiss Me is a black and white rhythmic poem in a postcard from urban Greenland touching upon rites of passage and young love. We Chose The Milky Way is an anthropological visit to a secretive tribe of young girls on planet earth where everything is artificial except the friendships. Everything here is as real as the dreams you dream with eyes open or closed.
