From The Depth Of My Heart is on one level a thriller, but it is also an experience similar to that of being in the wilderness. People have always been mesmerized by nature and it can have a very strong effect on you. One of my goals with the film was to convey just that feeling. A sensation of freedom, peace and being in an almost dreamlike state where all the pressures of our everyday lives seem distant and small.
That was one of the main points of interest for me, to have something horrifying and tragic happen in a place of such beauty and calm. The characters in the film are deeply affected by their surroundings, first in a positive way and then in a more dark and destructive way as nature turns against them.
The wilderness is truly the fifth cast-member and we took great care in finding locations that really are and feel untouched by man.
Director Magnus Hedberg, producer Magnus Paulsson, and actresses Felice Jankell and Jessica Raita will attend the screenings of From the Depths of My Heart at Kinopalatsi 8 on 22nd and 23rd of September at 9 PM.
