Richard portrays a petty thief walking around his home speaking about all the things he’s stolen. He hasn’t bought anything: not the fruit in the bowl, not the tooth brush… and by the way, not even the apartment is his. The story evolves into the story of his life; starting with small thefts with his father and ending at the fact that he now is a father himself and has to stop with this bad habit. Most people have shoplifted and everyone pilfers from their workplace, but still people claim that they don’t steal.
Born in 1964 in Stockhom, Sweden, where he is still based.
Started out as a poet and radioproducer. After some years he got interested in combining the sound and the words with the motion picture and started to work with both shortfilms and more experimental videos. His shortfilm ”My Croatian nose” was shown at festivals such as Indielisboa and Hot Docs to name a few. Some of his artfilms/experimentals, such as ”There are no limits to what I can do”, have been shown at both shortfilm and artfilm festivals both in Sweden and abroad.
“My art is often regarded as deeply personal and flavoured with a subtle sense of humour. I use myself as a creative tool in my productions since I strongly believe that being personal is being universal. Identity, obsession, and memory are some of the subjects I deal with in my art.”
