ABOUT

I'm a creative freelance editor, cameraman and director/producer for documentary films, tv and news.

Backyard Film Productions is my company based in Bangkok, Thailand and Stockholm, Sweden.

I founded Backyard in 2001 and I've since then worked with projects ranging from feature films to advertising to documentary films to Swedish sex education dramas(!).

Since 2007 I've been working mostly with documentary films. The kind with people not animals.

No matter what your background is, HIV does not discriminate. Neri, Kiren, Huyen and Pharozin are all women living with HIV. This is their story.

Like diamonds, formed under immense pressure to become the strongest and most brilliant natural substance known on earth, these women have overcome incredible challenges to emerge as shining examples, advocates for women living with HIV and AIDS.
In this documentary, the women share their stories with Susan Paxton, author and HIV activist. They talk about their journeys, about the threat of losing their children, the fear of being cast out by society, of eventually accepting themselves as positive women and ultimately becoming leaders in their communities. Their lives carry a powerful message of hope and empowerment.
