In All things disappear if you close your eyes (2017), Ina invited her mother Anita and her friend Carina on a charter trip. The friends talk about life, about memories and thoughts about the future. The film is a close and fine-tuned, fun and serious double portrait of two middle-aged women who raised children, went through relationships, worked in health care and fought quite hard in their lives, but who also experienced joy, especially in each other's company.
In Women doing nothing (2021), Ina creates a fictional space where women are allowed to do nothing as a response to the day by day societal pressures. The film has been shown as a video installation in the exhibition Leva Livet at Gotland’s Kunstmuseum this summer. For the premiere in Bergen, the film will be accompanied by a poem written by Ina.
