I just made a phone interview with the Finnish radio program “A-laget” at Radio X3M. They phoned me up about 8.30 Swedish time, and I hadn´t really spoken to anyone yet this morning, and the first words I say always use to sound a little bit strange… But, I think it went well though!
I´m not so used to the fact that my words goes straight out in the air, and that´s a little scary!! You can listen to the interview by following the link below.
Just after this I got a phone call from a girl telling me she found out about Nasty Old People through her little brother. He and his girlfriend downloaded and watched the film, liked it a lot, and just had to watch something from Roy Andersson after this. So now they have downloaded all his films… Sorry Roy, but I think this is amazing. Not just to be compared with this fantastic director who I deeply admire, but also that Nasty Old People on the Pirate Bay can open people’s eyes to new kinds of movies!
I´m also deeply honored to tell you that Nasty Old People will be shown in Vladivostok, Russia, tonight! Alexey Koropsky has a cinema project called Kinosreda in Vladivostok, where he shows films not that well known. This is a big moment to all of us who worked with Nasty Old People, and I´m truly touched when I discover that Vladivostok is placed on the other side of the earth, in fact, almost as far away from Sweden as you can come!! This is magical, and spreads a new light over The Pirate Bay release.
This movie, done under those circumstances, and with the now existing film system, would never ever reach Vladivostok if it wasn´t for The Pirate Bay and the fact that so many people believe that sharing is caring. And this is just a film! If a film can create those meetings, between people across the earth, I´m convinced anything is possible! What will happen when those forces decide it´s time to create peace on earth? I´m touched.
