Sagt om Still Born:
"Still Born, by Swedish filmmaker Asa Sandzen, was the most hard-hitting film in the programme, in which a pregnant woman describes the experience of discovering that her 18-week old foetus has serious heart defect, and making the devastating decision to end the pregnancy. The film does not shelter from the painful process of this, taking the audience through the whole physical and emotional journey of late abortion and delivery. The film is made to feel very real by the small but affecting details that are recalled about the medicalised termination process and the disturbed thought process that takes place in parallel. Ultimately this is a raw and truthful film about the pain of loss, that is as disarming as it is memorable." Recension från London International Animation Festival på Animated Docs
för filmen Andra stranden. Motiveringen lyder:
"När vi stiger in i Andra stranden möter vi personer på randen till dödsriket. Den mystiska och lugna atmosfären tillåter oss att dyka djupt in i deras världar och kamp för livet. Åsa Sandzéns dokumentärer hypnotiserar med ett unikt formspråk och stark vision."
