Interview with Marie Liden on Electric Malady Documentary

October 31, 2022

At the Edinburgh International Film Festival I sat down with director Marie Lidén to talk about her stunning documentary ELECTRIC MALADY.


William lives in rural Sweden in painful isolation, which his father describes as ‘a ghost trapped in a cottage in the middle of a forest.’ Shielding himself from technology and radiation with sheets of foil and copper-lined blankets, William claims to have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), a medically disputed syndrome still being explored by the WHO. Director Marie Lidén’s mother suffered from the same condition. The Swedish-born, Glasgow-based artist learns more about this mysterious illness in a poignant, thought-provoking film.
