The Travel Agency
The Travel Agency is the title of a film Annika Ström started working at in 2006. As the artist recalls in the report donated to the MoRE museum, it went through several phases and two productors, without never being realised: the script ”was about two women, one of which, wants to die, and one who wants to live. They contact an agency, which assists suicide. It is a Special Agency”. After a first financial failure, the project was sent to a new producer, who met the artist in 2014 and showed interest: unfortunately, as the artist recalls, nine months after the meeting, a director in the producer’s company announced in a radio interview her next film, with “thesame pitch as in Ström’s script”. The producer produce the new film. Annika Ström also states that “the producer and the director deny any plagiarism”.
The themes of fragility, uncertainty, sadness, the interest in the act of travelling and in the condition of the traveller, the focus on female protagonists, these are just a few hints we can grasp from the brief description of the artist showed here, that can also easily be found inside Annika Ström film production.
