The Umbrella - an award winning film poem about the power of faith>

Jeg vil meget gerne have din fortolkning af min prisvindende film, som jeg producered i London i 1986. Kommenter gerne i feltet under filmen.

The Umbrella (28 min short fiction) - Filmfestival in Huy, Belgium (Palm d'Argent, Prix de l'Office du Tourisme), Filmfestival Wattrelos, France (Medaille d'Or), Independent Film Festival Cork, Ireland (Best European Film).

The Umbrella was accomplished by a joint venture between individuals, businesses and organisations who all volunteered, I suppose, because they loved making films and liked my manuscript, and some, because I wouldn't let them not help. When I screened The Umbrella in Cinemas around Europe in the 80ties I received many different reactions from sheer excitement and admiration to tears and quiet reflections on death. I love this film so much, because I never stop seeing new meanings every time I watch it.

Some scenes in the film were invented by the cast and crew and I love seeing how our great team work created this film around shared ideas - ideas that I now see many more people share around the globe. Ideas like.... well, you tell me.

Here below you see me editing The Umbrella in a 16mm Steenbeck editing table.

Kind regards
