Alexandra has been a busy woman! There’s a film festival called Sveriges Kortfilm Festival 2014 (Swedish Short Film Festival) taking place March 28-29. A young woman named Elin Övergaard has submitted her short film entitled Sukta and our favourite Swede just so happens to be in it!
This is a story about anxiety, wandering around in nothing and chasing something unintelligible. And a hit with realization.

It might also interest you to know that Elin was an assistant director for Alexandra’s short film Fågel Fenix (aka Den Rätta). The two of them are also involved in another short film called Landet. Plenty to look forward to this year!
I scooped up a couple new photos on Instagram from the Blondie premiere last November as well as a picture I hadn’t seen before from the Venice premiere. The Instagram photos are those far-away-but-there’s-Alexandra type but it’s still good!
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.
The gala premiere of Lukas Moodysson’s Vi är bäst! (We Are the Best!) took place on Friday, October 11th at Cinema Saga followed by an after party at Kolingsborg with DJ Siri Hjorton Wagner. It must not have had too much press as I only came across one photo of Alexandra from the premiere. Here she is with Cissi Efraimsson of the band Vulkano.
More information has become available on Alexandra’s short film Fågel Fenix aka Fenix Bird.
Aspiring DJ Bea has traveled with her friends to a small outdoor music festival. While she’s initially as excited as anyone else, this feeling gets ruined when she receives a call from her boyfriend who breaks up with her. Further let down by her friends, Bea sets her sights on a young, male DJ to cheer herself up. »Fenix Bird« makes the most of its Swedish country landscape with clear and warm natural light, even in evening scenes. Bea’s adventures at the festival are alternately mundane and magical, while treated with a gentle uncertainty.
