As a child you may feel a bit isolated. You look at things, touch them and work out combinations. New data may be quite shocking. I didn’t wake up until I was well over twenty. I then read a book by Georg Borgström. He predicted that around 1970 the world would be hopelessly overpopulated and without enough food to feed its population.

Read the Map can be interpreted as a story of the Left’s disappointment. On the surface it’s a documentary but on a second level it is an adventure story, inspired by Franz Kafka and Fritz Lang.
