Jenny Palén

The profoundly fantastic video by Jenny Palén takes the viewer into the bizarre world of a girl's room full of whimsically childish items and a long-standing untidy mess. Meanwhile its inhabitant watches in amusement personalities on the Internet, who are even stranger than herself, and her only communication with her mother takes place angrily through a closed door. In the meantime, we watch the girl putting on her makeup and dressing up for a party at which it seems she will be the only guest. The fantastic level is represented by suddenly appearing elves, searching police officers and other characters who transform the story into a 21st-century Alice in Wonderland. (pv)
