Anna’s and Thomas’ bandmate was not supposed to die. And Anna was not supposed to kiss Thomas in the aftermath. Nor was she supposed to leave everything and move to Berlin. And Thomas was most certainly not supposed to just show up in Berlin one day, when she’s gotten a new life and moved on from him. But music has its own way.
A thousand hours is about Anna, musician from Copenhagen, her music dreams and her search for love - and herself. The film is a romantic drama and a music film with newly written music by up n coming Scandinavian artists. It takes place in Berlin and Copenhagen and is shot in Copenhagen, Berlin & Malmö.
Since I first started putting images and sound together, in my first film experiments, the combination of images and music have been the most thrilling part of filmmaking for me. Actually, thrilling is an understatement. It’s the most profound of artistic experiences. A feeling of being able to go beyond words to tell your story. In light of that it feels natural that my first feature fiction film is about music and musicans and the role that music can play in our lives. And how it can tell the story of our lives. To make a film where story, imagery and music feed of each other is my aim with A Thousand Hours.
