Nominations

Nominated for "Geytin" - the national Faroese short film award 2014 with the depiction "Fall for Ewe"

From the bestseller "Fractura nasi"

"Before, the police were the police. Now everybody wants to be the police; day care and social workers, teachers, journalists, nurses, dentists, rescue workers, volunteer supervisors, braindead traffic wardens and first-aiders. The social structure is distorted because people crave for power and we're all at risk of becoming modern cavemen with caps. In the end the only ones left are frowning people in reflective waist coats who interfere in other people's lives in a new paramilitary hell on earth. There is a threat of a born-again Yellow Peril, and, like George Carlin said, people think it is "JUST FUCKING DANDY"
