[The kidnapping] happened 14 years ago, and I didn't talk about it for ten years because I was too embarrassed. I was too scared. I thought, People are gonna judge me, they're gonna pity me, and I don't want that. Because I'm not a victim - I'm a survivor.— Frida Farrell

I was very concerned about who was going to take my story and realize it, so I was very particular and spent a lot of time going over things with him, talking about how I wanted it to be told.
We reached a compromise [in film "Selling Isobel" ] - arty on the one hand, raw and crazy on the other.
I considered writing a book too, but I think people don't like to read, to be honest - they want to watch. People want to see crazy things, so we decided to make a film ["Selling Isobel"] instead.
After the last screening [of "Selling Isobel" ] an 18-year-old girl came up to me and said, "Oh my God, I'm so naïve." I said, "No, you're not, you're just young." And she's so grateful for having seen it, because she's an actress and from now on she's going to take a friend with her to auditions and let her mom know exactly where she's going. That's a job done right there.
It's my story ["Selling Isobel"].I chose to write a screenplay about it because I think film is the quickest medium to get a story out, rather than writing a book.
