Our take

In an attempt to challenge gender roles and media representations of the “alpha male” actor and the “crazy” female artist, Anna Odell engages in a tremendous role-play with Scandinavia’s top actors. All our multifaceted identities are deconstructed in this playful Big Brother-type experiment.
