The Way Out West festival took place in Gothenburg from August 10th – 12th this summer. Alexandra Dahlström attended the event and was part of the line-up this year. There was a screening of the newly digitized version of Fucking Åmål as well as many parties. See the gallery of photos below as well as an interview with Alexandra from Göteborgs-Posten.
With the digital revival of Fucking Åmål recently, the updated version of the film was screened at Bio Victor, Filmhuset in Stockholm yesterday night. The event was sold out and photos have started to appear online.
Following the film there was a discussion with Alexandra Dahlström, Rebecka Liljeberg and film producer Lars Jönsson. They discussed the film, the Guldbagges and the film’s significance today.
One video has popped up on Instagram of Alexandra & Rebecka signing autographs for fans.
If you’re interested in a few extra photos check them all out in the photo gallery. A lot of them were similar so I didn’t post them all here.
Alexandra recently posted this behind the scenes gem from Fucking Åmål on her Instagram. Love it!
One of the moments when I decided what I wanted to become when I grow up. So grateful to be part of this mind blowing collaboration that made me realize the power of storytelling. It’s weird how this film still has it’s own life, like an autonomous state of it’s own where the population just keeps growing. Anyway, tomorrow we screen this little beauty in Stockholm almost 19years after shooting it and I feel like a happy teenage dinosaur rn ❤ #showmelove
Elin Övergaard has a new short film called Förebilder (Picture World) which premiered during the Göteborg Film Festival this year. It’s a 13-minute short film in Swedish and is about a modelling agent named Evan who tries to do a good deed during a fashion shoot. Alexandra Dahlström is in the film though I can’t say what her role is. In the photo posted on the Göteborg Film Festival website – as well as Elin’s Tumblr – I can spot Alexandra on the left with the mug in her hand and her head turned away. Hopefully this as well as some of Elin’s other short films will be available online soon!
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.
Writer and director Dunja Vujovic posted a photo on Instagram of a photo from her script Love Revisited. I copied down the text and translated it into English. I couldn’t make out her notes and edits so it’s possible the script changed during filming. I’m hoping to see the film at some point but for now, here is an excerpt available in Swedish and English.
So this is a pretty unique find! Here is a song from Saga Gärde’s short film Babysister by Sophia Ersson. I can’t recall how I came across it but I like it.
A lovely black and white photo from behind the scene’s of Chateau Majorica posted on Tumblr on October 13th.
