In 1933 Anna-Helèn Johansson wrote 30 letters to her sister Clary. She, a young farmer’s daughter, had got the chance to live in a city household in Stockholm. There is a flow of descriptions in these letters and above all – a flow of feelings. Anna-Helèn was supposed to be like a member of the fine opera-family Stiebel. She became a maid. She got pissed! In my animation, based on Anna-Helèn’s letters, I want to give associations to women’s lives today, my own and others. Anna-Helèn, my mother, died in 1997. The music is collaboration with composer Carin Blom.
Born 1956 in Maglaby Kvidinge, Sweden. Lives and works in Maglaby in the northern province of Skåne, Sweden.
