Incidents - Way home


The life of a woman is a constant thriller.
As soon as we leave our house we’re going out to war.
You never know when you suddenly have to flee, or to defend yourself.

Three true stories - experienced, animated and told by the director, about not coming home safely as a young girl/woman.

Each time men come in her way, making her way home threatening and difficult.

She is a survivor, she can handle it - but why does she have to?

Swedish title: Incidenter - Hemväg

Director: Jessica Laurén

Crew: Maria Åkesson, Lasse Sander, Fredrik Sundberg, Ida Lövestam

I have focused on women's everyday life and all these small incidents associated with men that one and one easily passes without notice (sometimes not even noticed by women themselves) but in the long run, by it's nature of constant threat, it decreases women's freedom and self confidence, limits our lives and makes us look upon ourselves as victims and objects.
