My name is Max Nilén and I am an actor. I am passionate about creating my own projects and using film and theater as a means of giving people thoughts and reflections.
I have previously done a theater performance called Rulle which is about sitting in a wheelchair. It is about prejudices and also the experiences as a relative. My mother became spinal cord injuried when I was six years old, so much of that performance is based on our own experiences and reflections.
Now I have started a project with the Spinalis Foundation to develop my performance “Rulle” into a film. I will start my research with a more solid interview material where I want to immerse myself in everything that has to do with spinal cord injury, paralysis, wheelchairs, relatives’ perspectives, prejudices and experiences.
The project will be in progress from the autumn of 2020 and six months ahead.
