Back in March I had written about Alexandra’s involvement in a short film called Bussresan. It has since been released and is available to view online until May 1st. It is a 14-minute animated short directed by Sarah Gampel. Alexandra Dahlström is the voice of the main character Sarah. It’s mostly in English with some Swedish and French subtitles throughout.
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!
Utvecklingssamtal (aka Headway) is now available on Vimeo with English subtitles. It is a short film by Jens Jonsson. Alexandra is not on screen but you can hear her voice. She plays the voice of the main character’s daughter. You can read a little bit more about the film here.
Zoégas is a coffee product in Sweden which posted this video on August 10th called “Coffee By Women” which was directed by Alexandra Dahlström and filmed by Petrus Sjövik in Kenya.
“Lazima upandishe Sauti ili uskiike” means we must raise our voices to be heard. We at Zoegas together with artist Alicios Theluji translated and recorded the classic Swedish song into Swahili. We believe that people who work with coffee should feel good about working with coffee. We believe that people should have meaningful lives, good lives, and create a good future for the country. Through “Coffee by Women”, we encourage more women to study and work with coffee growing, taking up more space. Obviously along with boys and men. The more the better. Through our song and film, we want to show Kenya as we see it when we visit the country, even outside of the coffee plantation. Strong girls and boys who confidently look to the future. In coffee growing but also other activities. Together.
If you follow Alexandra on Instagram you can see all sorts of photos she posted during production of this video.
If you follow Alexandra on Instagram you may already know that she was directing a music video for the Swedish band Teddybears called Shades On.
Alexandra has made the music video available on her Vimeo page recently.
There’s a cameo near the end of Helena af Sandeberg (Alexandra’s Blondie co-star) which was a nice surprise! I did not see Alexandra in the video but it’s a good watch and the song is very upbeat and catchy.
The Actors In Scandinavia resume page for Alexandra Dahlström went offline a couple months ago which was disappointing as that was kind of the only “official” website we had for her. However, Alexandra recently updated her Instagram and included a link to her own website which includes her work. It also includes a really nice “About” page which is worth reading as it was written by Alexandra herself!
Alexandra has made her Vimeo account public and you can currently watch 4 of her films (Lacrimosa, Kom Hit, Because the Night & The Audition (which features Julia Gahne)) plus a clip for what I believe is Fågel Fenix.
I’m super happy because Because the Night is subtitled in English and I’ve been searching for English subtitles since it was released!
Another video has surfaced from the Stockholm International Film Festival. It’s in English and Swedish with some subtitles in a language I can’t identify. There are a few small clips of Alexandra throughout. Now I’m search of a video for the Best Documentary award from the festival because as you can see – Alexandra presented the award to Liang Zhao for his documentary Behemoth.
Rasmus Luthander’s show reel was posted on YouTube back in February and the first thirty seconds contains a clip from Elin Övergaard’s short film Antingen-eller. The scene has English subtitles which is always great for us non-Swedish speakers.
It’s that time of the year again! The 26th Stockholm International Film Festival was held November 11th through 22nd and although Alexandra Dahlström did not enter a film this year, she did participate on the jury for the Stockholm Documentary Competition alongside Stefan Nylén and Matías Meyers. Here’s a collection of photos from the festival taken from Instagram and other places on the web.
And here’s a bonus – a video taken at the festival where you can see Alexandra sneak a photo on her iPhone. Or maybe she was just checking for messages?
