Writer and director Dunja Vujovic posted a photo on Instagram of a photo from her script Love Revisited. I copied down the text and translated it into English. I couldn’t make out her notes and edits so it’s possible the script changed during filming. I’m hoping to see the film at some point but for now, here is an excerpt available in Swedish and English.
I went to visit the Filmbasen website recently and Alexandra Dahlström is attached to a new project called Bussresan or The Bus Trip. Here’s a translated synopsis from the website:
An autobiographical animation that takes place in Israel and Palestine. It is a road movie about Jews identity as well as criticism of Israel’s policy regarding the occupation of Palestine. The film follows the main character Sarah, when she gets to go around Israel and show film with a film festival bus. On the bus are both Israeli and international film students from around the world. Sarah is looking for political discussions and community. But the trip turns out to be something other than what she expected.
In parallel with the bus trip along the highways in Israel runs a story back in time. Sarah’s Jewish grandmother, who escaped from the Nazis in the forties Poland, makes itself felt and even her father who disappeared when Sarah was little. They are now a part of her journey.
The film would also call for discussion of the Academic and Cultural Boycott of the contexts in which Israel is not actively working against the occupation.
It’s unclear what Alexandra’s role is with regards to this film. Hopefully more information will become available soon.
There’s a really nice review (in English) about Fia-Stina Sandlund’s She’s Wild Again Tonightposted here. I remember seeing the trailer on YouTube recently and was a bit confused as to why Alexandra Dahlström was not in it.
Alexandra Dahlström was the original Shima character and when it came to the third film, Sandlund stated that Dahlström didn’t want to continue in the role. Therefore, Sandlund thought about only one more Swedish actress whom she thought had similar qualities to Miss Julie – Shima Niavarani.
My best guess is that Alexandra had her hands full making her documentary All We Have Is Now and working on her other projects. I figured this tidbit of information would be relevant to those of us who’ve been waiting for the third installment of the She’s Blonde Like Me trilogy.
I managed to salvage a copy of the script from the French short film La Carpe which was posted on Jenny’s original Alexandra Dahlström Fansite (since gone offline). I just edited slightly and it’s been archived on the Media page.
I was searching for something Alexandra related when I learned something new. Alexandra appeared in an episode of a TV show called Mamma, det är en kändis i köket (translation: Mom, There’s a Celebrity in our Kitchen) as herself. It’s a reality TV series that lasted 2 seasons where people would want to meet a certain celebrity so the show would send that celebrity to their home. In season 2, episode 4 a girl named Liza wanted to meet Alexandra Dahlström as she would like advice on becoming an actress.
It aired on ZTV and there are 2 full episodes posted on YouTube but sadly, not the episode featuring Alexandra. Maybe someday!
I also learned that Carolina Gynning (Alexandra’s co-star in Blondie) was featured in an episode where she meets a young woman who admits she had suffered from anorexia. I haven’t been able to track down that episode either.
