Sexual offenses are surely among the most horrible things people can do to each other. There seems to be a broad social consensus on how to deal with the offenders. In the U.S. their photos are posted publicly. When they have served their prison sentence they are not allowed to live near places regularly frequented by children. Only social projects like the one in Florida portrayed by Frida and Lasse Barkfors help them deal with their crimes and find their way back to life. In tranquil images the directors record the daily life of this “gated community”, getting very close to some of the roughly 120 men and women who live there. Harrowing and very different stories unfold in concentrated intimacy, some of them about violence and abuse and a lifelong struggle for dignity and human warmth, some of them the stories of lives thrown off track. They are all about how to deal with one’s crime and how to live with it.

But we also meet people who have been caught in a system that, in a mixture of social hysteria and a profit-oriented legal system, has turned the punishment of alleged sexual offenders into a perfidious business model. This film makes one re-consider the term “pervert”.

Roommate Wanted – Dead or Alive Lærke Kromann, David Crisp

It is a little creepy when you suddenly hold your roommate’s head in your hand, when all he wants is to do everything right. It’s just not easy to have a zombie for a roommate. But not boring either.
