“Gunvor Nelson has always dug where she stood. Attentive, responsive, determined, curious and with a great sense of humor. The films have followed her as a person as she films. Over the years, there is an ever-growing frustration over the fragility and transience of film as a material. Celluloid is anything but a mass-producible and automatically copyable medium. Thus, the increased demand for her work in this Blu-ray edition is most welcome.” - John Sundholm
