My Body

Margreth Olin

Norway 2002.

At any point in her life up to now, she has had – according to some people – at least one unpleasant bodily detail that ‘had to be dealt with’. Oddly (or sadly) enough, at other times in her life there were people who found these very same body parts nice, charming, and sexually pleasurable. The first were women. The second were men. “Thank god for the other gender,” she concludes.

Margreth Olin’s film is what the title says it will be: a private, visual enterprise that combines private footage with intentional documenting and reconstruction, resulting in a personal history structured around a number of body-related, externally induced and healed anxieties.
