Alexandra Dahlström and singer El Perro Del Mar have been working together on a short film/music video called Lust for Life. Alexandra posted a teaser on her Vimeo page. Take a look!
Alexandra Dahlström and Zoë Que have both posted a video of Drömfabriken (Dream Baby Dream) on their Vimeo accounts. It seems that this is the work in progress piece they shared at the Stockholm Film Festival this year and hopefully we will get to see the entire film sometime.
Two best friends, Alex (Hedda Stiernstedt) and Valentina (Alexandra Dahlström), dream about conquering the world together. But when they go to Los Angeles and audition for the same part, they start competing about the big breakthrough. Eventually Alex has to ask herself what she’s willing to do to achieve success?
My apologies for the lack of updates. My real life has been crazy busy with a new house, a new job and social obligations galore which is unusual for me. It’s that time of the year again and the Stockholm International Film Festival is approaching! This year it will take place from November 8th to November 19th and some goodies have already started to pop up online.
Firstly, Alexandra Dahlström will be presenting a work in progress called Drömfabriken on November 15th with Amna Maksumic.
Secondly, a trailer for Elin Övergaard’s short film Förebilder (Picture World) has been released. Alexandra appears in it but does not have any lines.
They’re fabulous, they’re dramatic, and quite frankly they are a hot mess! Alexandra Dahlström has posted a teaser for her secret project Chateau Majorica on Vimeo.
It’s going to be released as a 12-part web TV series and it will star: Petter Köhler, Lisa Pyk Wirstöm & Alexandra Dahlström.
I’m beyond excited for this and I really hope it’s going to have some English subtitles available! I’ve been learning Swedish the past couple months but I’m still in the very basic stages.
Here is a synopsis translated from Alexandra’s Vimeo page:
LUDDAN & MAJO
A web TV series in 12 parts starring Petter Köhler, Lisa Pyk Wirstöm & Alexandra Dahlström
Luddan & Majo is a surreal sitcom about two lost red wine boozers living in a universe somewhere between Nivå 22 (restaurant) and the Grand Hôtel. A slippery, self-proclaimed astrologer and a faded, Russian diva actress who burned her last bridge long ago. Together they embark on an incredible and often semi-criminal adventure.
With them on their runaway train is Saffran, a young man with a good conscience. He holds up Luddan and Majo’s hair when they’ve finished off the last bottle of red wine and sweeps up the broken shards of glass after derailed evenings lined with magic, romance and moral decay.
In Chateau Majorica these three broken but hopeful souls seek shelter together and create their own reality. In a parallel universe chalk full of mystery, drama and sex, they live out every day of their lives as a hysterical soap opera – the eternal search for dreams, identity and belonging.
Majorica is a luxurious and lively bohemian. She lives in a universe lined with magic and mystery and her inner revelations lead her through life. She is a self-appointed astrologer and divine medium. She does not hesitate to share her knowledge with gorgeous men in her cosmopolitan temple over a bottle of red wine. Majo once burned out in the fashion industry and then avoided the darkness of working life. She is convinced that she has a more important task here on earth. However, she is usually too drunk to make sense of it.
Lyudmila is a violently successfully actress and a rare beauty if she does say so herself. If someone asks, she is 21 years old. In a previous life, she was a successful CEO in a multinational conglomerate, but she felt that the world needed to get to know her artistic eagerness. She is a misunderstood star and is convinced that her breakthrough is just delayed. She lives constantly in the role of the life threatening, Russian femme fatal. Everything is an action film for her, even her catastrophic romances that she rushes into full force.
Saffran is a 26 year old with no gender identity whose main pursuit in life is to save Luddan and Majo from falling into the valley of death. He grew up in Chile with a melodramatic mother who blamed all her failures on him. At the age of six, Saffran was adopted by a rich upper-class couple in Stockholm and was kept in a broom closet in the basement. A few years ago, he ran into Luddan and Majo and continued his career as a compassionate and subdued Cinderella. He dreams of one day getting on stage and singing his heart out.
Alexandra Dahlström has a page on the Giants & Toys website. She posted the link on her Instagram page recently. There are some commercials, music videos and trailers for her films. It’s definitely worth a look!
The teaser trailer for Alexandra’s documentary is finally online! I am excited for this one as I’ve become quite a fan of Vulkano over the years and Alexandra has been working on this for about three years, maybe more! I think it’ll be really cool. I hope there will be a version with English subtitles too!
The trailer for Antingen-eller aka Either/Or was posted to Elin Övergaard’s Vimeo account about a week ago and this time there are English subtitles!
The trailer for Ömheten (Broken Hill Blues) is now available with English subtitles. Last I checked it will be premiering at the Stockholm Film Festival on November 11, 2013. I think Alexandra will likely make an appearance at the premiere and she is also screening her short film Fågel Fenix at the festival so I’m sure she’ll pop up somewhere.
According to IMDB.com the film Ömheten has changed it’s English working title from Tenderness to Broken Hill Blues and an official release date is set for December 6, 2013 in Sweden. It will also be shown at the Stockholm Film Festival in a few days on November 11, 2013 if you’re lucky enough to have tickets!
Below is the official trailer for the film. Alexandra is not in it, but her voice can be heard in the school scene starting at 0:19.
