Hansson’s films are the result of a sultry, indulgent rendezvous with imagery accompanied by music like moody weather, independent, sometimes appeasing, sometimes contrarian.
We see conventionally beautiful images approached at strange angles, held captive for overextended intervals. We viewers become voyeurs of something, perhaps, unworthy of being fetishized. This might be the source of Hansson’s originality.
Hansson eschews responsibility for their continuing existence, pushing them like unaccompanied minors into the world. His FILMDREN, neither ameobic nor pretentious creatures staged at the apex of evolution, are awkward, maladjusted, sometimes poorly behaved. They are, in other words, unique, courageous and defiant.
