My film career has taken me on an odyssey from suicidal depression in my native Finland (Family Files) through challenging the fear of intimacy (Home Recordings) before going back north to trace the censored history of my German grandfather (Who the Devil Can See in the Dark) and returning to Amsterdam where I contemplated on motherhood (Mother Land).
