It’s always fun to come across older things involving Alexandra Dahlström. I accidentally came across this YouTube video awhile back. It’s from the 69th Venice Film Festival, which if you’ll remember, is where Blondie premiered in 2012.
Elin Övergaard posted two stills from her short film Sukta on her Tumblr page. There’s not much else available about the film except a tagline:
A little story about getting to know your angst.
Many thanks to Fish for this one!
A new and beautiful photo appeared on the Brobygrafiska Utbildning website recently. It also included either a script or a short story written by Alexandra called “Nattvilse” or “Lost Night”. Here is an English translation from the site to the best of my ability.
Hello, my name is Alexandra and I grew up in Stockholm and at various film shoots. “The Master and Margarite” and “One hundred years of solitude” helped me discover magic realism and I realized early on that I wanted to become a director when I grew up. My films are usually set in dark celebrations or magic hundred acre woods and range from Stockholm club kids to northern watchers of the forest. But whether they are nocturnal or ladies of the woods, my characters always get tangled in love stories and carry a very strong desire for freedom. In recent years, I have lived and worked in Rome, Paris and Rio de Janeiro but remain in constant search of the Russian soul.
You can read an English translation of “Nattvilse” here. Many thanks to Fish for finding this!
