Goede Tijden!

It’s been eleven years to the day that Alexandra made her debut on the Dutch soap opera Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden and it’s taken exactly that long for me to get a hold of the episodes.

Alexandra appeared in eleven episodes back in 2007 as Skylar Nilsson. She also returned for four more episodes in 2008. I’ve compiled all of her clips from each episode of season 17 which you can download and watch via this link or by clicking the image below.

Thank you to GTST Classics!

 

 

Dream Baby Dream

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?

Love Revisited

Today is a wonderful day! Dunja Vujovic has shared her short film Love Revisited on Vimeo in full length and with English subtitles! I very much enjoyed it and since I don’t want to spoil anything I’m going to post the video here so you can watch and enjoy.

And another video from the Sussie Mellstedt photo shoot posted on Sussie’s Instagram.

WOW Talks

The Way Out West Pride (West Pride) took place during the festival this year. Alexandra Dahlström took part in a panel interview called Fucking Queer from Then to Now. It’s in Swedish only so I can’t give too much more information but it’s always nice to find new videos!
 

Way Out West!

The Way Out West festival took place in Gothenburg from August 10th – 12th this summer. Alexandra Dahlström attended the event and was part of the line-up this year. There was a screening of the newly digitized version of Fucking Åmål as well as many parties. See the gallery of photos below as well as an interview with Alexandra from Göteborgs-Posten.

Chateau Majorica Teaser

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.

CHARACTERS:

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.

Fucking Åmål Digital Screening

With the digital revival of Fucking Åmål recently, the updated version of the film was screened at Bio Victor, Filmhuset in Stockholm yesterday night. The event was sold out and photos have started to appear online.

Following the film there was a discussion with Alexandra Dahlström, Rebecka Liljeberg and film producer Lars Jönsson. They discussed the film, the Guldbagges and the film’s significance today.

One video has popped up on Instagram of Alexandra & Rebecka signing autographs for fans.

If you’re interested in a few extra photos check them all out in the photo gallery. A lot of them were similar so I didn’t post them all here.

Min Nya Vän

There is a video on Youtube from the Göteborg Film Festival of the opening night festivities. There was an icebreaker event called Min Nya Vän or My New Friend which paired up attendees with someone they may not know in order to make a new friend. Alexandra Dahlström was paired with a young woman named Ana Alcana at the event. Here is a very brief snippet from the Min Nya Vän event. You can see Alexandra and Ana at the 1:13 mark.
