The definition of the Axis of Evil happened in the aftermath of September 11.th when George Bush in January 2002 gave a speech where he named a string of countries thought to be homes of terror. The countries were Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. In Bedtime Stories form the Axis of Evil we visit a family from each country as night falls over the earth. Through childlike cardboard cities we enter into a space between the strange logic of political agitation and fairytales as the stories between child and parent unfold. The stories are woven together by love, ideas of justice, beauty, and ultimately concepts of good and evil. It is a film about the stories that devide us and bring us together. About the fine line between storytelling and reality.
