Forest

Maria Ångerman

Three persons meet in the forest where they used to play as children. They have not seen each other since. The encounter is charged with guilt, accusation and defense, but also with the wish to re-conciliate. The film does not reveal what happened, how and why, but focuses on the moment of encounter, captured by a continuously moving camera.

Press Photos
Maria Ångerman's work encompasses a range of media, from drawing and animation to participative projects, but has recently focused mainly on film. Central to this body of work is a sensitivity to personal engagement and the fragility of intimate moments in alienating public environments. In 2014 she obtained an MA at the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam. Previously she worked several years in Barcelona, where she exhibited extensively. Her work has also been shown mainly in northern Europe as well as in Brazil and Turkey. Currently Ångerman is based in Berlin and Vaasa.
