I Think I Have a Crush on You

Maria Eriksson-Hecht, Sweden, 2017

9 min.Short fiction

13-year-old Nadja has met her soulmate, William, online. Even though she hasn’t met him in real life it feels like love. But when talking evolves into a sharing of nude images William doesn’t seem as cute and sensitive anymore.
Based on true stories and real legal cases, this movie positions the subject “grooming” in a new spotlight. Instead of showing an incident where the perpetrator builds up a relationship with the victim over a few days, maybe weeks, this story focuses on an occurrence that takes place within a few hours. With the internet growing so fast, and the technique expanding, the perpetrator has a lot of options to control the situation and pretend to be someone else. Research shows that these events might occur during just a few hours, and not always during days or weeks as before, therefore this writer and director wanted to focus on incidents that happens during a few hours because it can happen so fast, and it’s important to make children aware of this.
