True Bloods Alexander Skarsgard signed ‘To Kill A Child’ Short Film Up For Auction

From SkarsgårdNews.com

Next up for bid is my last signed DVD of the English version of the award winning short film Att döda ett barn(To Kill a Child) written and directed by Alexander Skarsgård and Björne Larson. Based on the famous short story by Swedish author Stig Dagerman, it was released in 2003 and won GRAND PRIX and International PRESS AWARD at the Odense International Film Festival (2003).

 

The short story that this is based on is an extremely powerful account of a day, supposedly normal and fun, that will lead to the death of a child due to careless speeding. This short captures that beautifully. The writing in the short story paints a very ordinary happy day that builds in tension by revealing it’s ending almost immediately – but the people in the story continue to be innocent, happy, unconcerned – until the ultimate tragedy strikes.Well shot, and very well directed – this is an excellent short that really captures the spirit of the piece, and is incredibly moving in its shots of a small child and two families who are changed forever.

For a short it carries real weight and is a triumph.

I received this copy directly from the directors and both have signed it. This is a rare collector’s item not only because it is in English (narrated by Stellan Skarsgard) but also because I can confirm – from the directors – that the English version of this DVD has never and will never be sold in the United States.

THIS DVD ALSO INCLUDES THE SWEDISH VERSION (also narrated by Stellan Skarsgard) BUT IT IS ALSO RARE TO FIND IT IN SWEDEN.

All proceeds go to Amnesty International!

Happy bidding!
