Her 1976 film Near and Far Away won the award for Best Director at the 13th Guldbagge Awards.[1] Her 1978 film The Walls of Freedom was entered into the 11th Moscow International Film Festival.[2] According to film historian Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, Ahrne was one of the first women to make documentary films in Sweden, and Foster noted that Ahrne's films have received little attention in the United States.[3]
