Landet

Some news about the mysterious film Alexandra Dahlström is attached to called Landet. It’s a 22 minute short film by Elin Övergaard and seems to have been renamed to Antingen-eller which translates to Either Or.

A small cottage deep in the countryside. 22-year old Elliot (Rasmus Luthander) has escaped the superficial everyday he could no longer endure. But the outside world is hanging over him as a constant threat.

Suddenly, a taxi drives up – out steps his sister Torild (Alexandra Dahlström). This is the first time the siblings have seen each other since Elliot left her and their sick mother back home. Her wish: he must come home. Now. He needs to stop hiding, come home and take responsibility for his life and his family.

This is a movie about two siblings who for the first time, address a family crisis and confront each other’s conflicting perspectives on life.

Upcoming Film Festivals

all-we-have

This year is starting out pretty busy for Miss Alexandra! She has a couple films showing at some upcoming film festivals.

Firstly, there is the Vulkano documentary she’s been working on for awhile now called All We Have is Now. It will be showing as a work in progress at the Tempo Documentary Festival on March 5th. Here is a synopsis of the film as provided on their website. (Thanks to Fish for this!)

A film about, with and for young people, who are on the verge of becoming adults. The film takes place mostly in Stockholm but also in London and Los Angeles. Three young people are in focus; Cissi Efraimsson, Lisa Pyk Wirström and Rebecka Rolfart. They’re childhood friends and play in the same band, Vulkano. In the film, we get to follow them in everything, big and small. The director Alexandra Dahlström has, with her sensitive mind, filmed under a long period and managed to acquire fantastic material.

Next we have her short film Fågel Fenix playing at Buff Film Festival in Malmö. The festival is taking place March 10-15.

In some less than stellar news, it seems the short film Sukta we were anticipating at the Swedish Short Film Festival this March has been pulled in favor of another one of Elin Övergaard’s short films called Gryning aka Stockholm Daybreak. Alexandra is not in the film but you can watch it on Elin’s Vimeo page if you’re interested! Maybe she’s just taking more time to finesse Sukta for us.
