From One Island To Another is written and directed by Swedish director Paul Jerndal. He had two goals for the film; One was to combine several art forms, bringing together a variety of artists through a single conceptual platform; Drawing on music, still photography, architecture, art, fashion, design and sound, the film’s process sought to combine the work of as many talented creative people as possible, and to make a piece of art that they could all believe in.
Most of the creators have a strong connection to both Gotland and Manhattan. Desginer Fannie Schiavoni grew up on Gotland and her design is truly inspired by that Island - she has worked with artists as Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus. The Award Winning Andreas Forsberg is the architect behind Studio Furillen - the unique house is built on Gotland that can be seen several times in the film. Carin Rodebjer works in New York and is also from Gotland. Johan Hellström spent many years of his life to create Fabriken Furillen - the unique and world wide known hotel at Gotland and has since then lived on the Island. Paul Jerndal has spent many summer days on Gotland and has lived in New York from time to time.
