Introduce Yourself : Producer, director, screenwriter by Börje Peratt

Börje Peratt

Producer, director, screenwriter

Hello fellow Creatives! I am a Swedish filmmaker born in Stockholm 1949. Turning 70 next year there are still so much to do. Having premiere and distribute the documentary "The Patient who built a Hospital". Complete the sequel about Dr Enby "The Last Battle". Complete the book trilogy on "The Origin of Consciousness" with the third book "Try and Try Again". Getting two features into production. "John Bauer and the Mountain KIng" and "Land of Wooden Gods". And my son says I have to put my Musical "The Fair" on Stage. I started the career at Swedish Public Broadcast Radio (SR) and the Swedish Public Broadcast Television (SVT) and have made TV-series, Short films and Documentaries and not until later Features. The easiest way of introducing my self is to use one of my Director's Statement, for instance the Documentary Feature Film about Dr Erik Enby, "The Doctor who refused to give up". https://filmfreeway.com/projects/1523297 But that would narrow the picture since my almost 45 years in the business is so much more. I have an urge to tell and the driving force is existential questions and our way of facing obstacles to realize the meaning of life. Being a so called Renaissance Man the topics may be portrayed in any media and different forms. One example is the music video "The Wall of Shame". Yes I needed to express my feeling about what is going on at the Mexico-US border. https://filmfreeway.com/projects/1519917 When I as an 8 year old heard about Hitler I couldn't understand why people supported him and why people just didn't get rid of him. I promised my self that if something like that would occur again I would do anything to resist it. Being a journalist the most important is defending human rights and democracy. And those are at danger today. I am, married to Ritva mother of our two sons and she is equal partner in our three media companies and of great importance for everything we produce. I am responsible for the creative ideas and she for turning every penny into multiple resources. She has also sort of a final view on anything we do. So its a partnership based on complementary resources. Soon the website https://peratt.com will re release, developed the last week with our son who lives in Barcelona. We are blessed with a lovely grandchild that needs babysitting. After months of skyping we can for some weeks also get hugs and enjoy the wonderful things a 18 months baby has to sing out. With this said and done I´m so thankful for what life has brought. Thank You for Your Time and eventual response

God morning Elisabeth from Barcelona Spain, nice to get your response.

Elisabeth Meier

Barcelona... it's been I while that I've been there. So it's more Buenos Días! Are you on holidays?

Not Holidays but working together with our son to develop my personal website http://peratt.com and at the same time my wife babysits our grandchild with some assist from me.

Patricia Poulos

Bless you and your family Borje. I know the joy of the little one's - mine just turned three years old (boy & Girl) twins. Wonderful to have The Lord amongst us.

Börje Peratt

Thank You Patricia for your nice comment. Have to (stop) pause working for some hours now want to join my wife and grandchild in the park. Yes we are blessed.

Pamela Bolinder

Hell Borje! If you have stopped working what is your intention here on Stage 32?

Börje Peratt

Pamela, you misunderstood my comment to Patricia. I had to go away in the park for a few hours. I'm far from quitting work. If you read my introduction, it would hopefully clarify that I work more than full time. I was invited to Stage 32 probably because of that. So whats my intention. Finding people that want to and can contribute to a discussion and exchange experiences.

Pamela Bolinder

Awesome, thanks for the info!
