Från Djupet av Mitt Hjärta

Från Djupet av Mitt Hjärta

Four teenagers are fatefully thrown into a veritable hell in this ambient and sometimes truly poetic Swedish genre drama.

The film is deeply rooted in southern Sweden – it was largely filmed on location in the dramatic environment of Söderåsen National Park and already in 2010, we screened a pilot of the film here at LIFFF, and last year, a short version was screened as part of our Work in Progress series. This year it’s back – and finally complete.

From the Depth of My Heart was inspired by movies like Shutter Island and Deliverance and is about a group of teenagers who have just left high school and feel the vast adulthood spreading out in front of them. They head out to the wilderness to do some canoeing, far away from their regular lives and the misery that holds them there. But what was meant to be a fun, awesome, life affirming experience turns out to become a cause for great suffering.  Even as audience members, we can not be prepared for the massive glass splinter this film will drive into our hearts. And we helped build it.
