Vimeo

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!

Enjoy them while you can!

She delves into the caches of female friendships

PERSONAL. Alexandra Dahlström broke through as a 14-year old in Show Me Love.

Today, she is both directing and acting, with friendship and music as recurring themes. Alexandra Dahlström has a lot going on. Her latest short film Fågel Fenix premiered at the Stockholm Film Festival before Christmas. Now she is script training while she cuts her first feature film.

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.

Sukta

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!

Sukta

Here’s a brief synopsis provided on the Sveriges Kortfilm Festival website:

This is a story about anxiety, wandering around in nothing and chasing something unintelligible. And a hit with realization.

 

10 minutes, Fiction

Producer: Elin Övergaard

Cast: Alexandra Dahlström – The Suktande
Eric Olofsson – The Realization
Iga Miklet – Photo
Simon Elvas – Sound
Elin Övergaard – Script & Clips

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!

Broken Hill Blues Trailer

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.

Fenix Bird

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.

More information can be found on the Stockholm Film Festival website.

Update: It seems Fågel Fenix is the original title of Den rätta. I thought the plots sounded similar so now that makes sense. (Source)
