Director Statement

Girls Lost is a supernatural teen movie about the importance and essential essence of gender. It centers around fourteen-year-old Kim and her friends Bella and Momo, three girls moving in the transitional area between childhood and adulthood. In Bella's garden there is a greenhouse in which the girls create and play in their own space, a free zone where different rules apply. In the greenhouse there is also a magic flower whose sap turns the girls into boys, a mindblowing drug that completely transforms them. During nocturnal odysseys they enjoy the power and the privileges a boy's body offers, and Kim, in particular, is lured further and further into the boys' world. In Girls Lost, fairy tale and imagination are mixed in a realistic depiction of what is it is like to grow up today, seen from a girl's perspective. At the same time, ideas which highlights the different conditions for girls and boys through asking important questions about gender. With the film; Keining examines the limits of self and the body, and in the portrayal of Kim she shows that the phenomena of identity and gender describe a perpetual motion, something that is constantly changing and negotiable.  -Alexandra.
