This film for Reebok tells the incredible journey of Karl Dyall, a gifted Swedish stage actor and athlete who battled chronic depression and rebuilt himself as a human through his love for movement.

Karl's story is one of triumph over adversity, of rising above the challenges that life throws at us, and finding hope in the darkest of moments. As a filmmaker, I was deeply moved by Karl's vulnerability and physical power in front of the camera. He opened himself up to us in a way that was both raw and authentic, allowing us to capture his incredible spirit and the essence of his remarkable journey.

Our film was a collaborative effort, with every member of the team pouring their heart and soul into the project. We wanted to create a film that not only showcased Karl's incredible story but also served as a source of inspiration and hope for anyone facing their own personal struggles. We wanted to capture the power of movement as a means of healing, and show that it's possible to overcome even the greatest obstacles.

In the end, our film was more than just a visual representation of Karl's journey. It was a testament to the human spirit, to the power of resilience, and to the beauty of the human experience. It was an honor to be a part of this project, and I am grateful to Karl for sharing his story with us and allowing us to bring it to life on screen.
