Together with the Norwegian film director Marike Halle she runs the film collective “Vapen och Dramatik”. Bodéns film “Driving under the influence of” is a visual experiment where dance meets childhood memories in a deserted landscape. The film shows the sparsely populated areas often hard and difficult conditions. The film was shot 200 km north of the Arctic Circle in -28 degrees. Having a party is not the easiest. The film creates a humorous and beautiful portrait of the fairytale landscape and everyday life in the north.
