Charlotte Berglin, Born 1980, lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Charlotte makes intimate, thoughtful, highly personal documentary films that explore ideas of the self, our relationships, and the structure of society in which they unfold. The meeting points between these three areas of our lives is where she unearths meaning, reflecting our successes and failures. Charlotte’s films are thorough yet playful (work in progress - Tantleken), and despite the thought provoking themes, she guides us through the unfolding images with a gentle hand.
Started in 2006, A Scarlet Film productions have been featured in film festivals and on television, most notably the 2009 release Se Till Mig som Vuxen Är (Release Me).
The long process time in which Charlotte gathers footage, writes, and makes experimental edits, is crucial however to the subtle portraits she creates. In Charlotte’s words:
“I have always been fascinated by people’s behaviour and how we interact with one another.
The camera has become an extension of my arm and through the lens I have found a way to communicate - a way to get closer, to find and understand a new perspective and insight on life.
The camera explores and touches people in a way that defies words.
I’m curious about how fear affects peoples lives and creates unstable or unhealthy relationships. In my forthcoming film
Between Neighbours/Oss Grannar Emellan, I investigate a neighbours’ criminal background as a way to face myself through my own beliefs and fears.
It is a film about facing violence and its reflections upon us, as seen through our contact with others.”
