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.
There is a video on Youtube from the Göteborg Film Festival of the opening night festivities. There was an icebreaker event called Min Nya Vän or My New Friend which paired up attendees with someone they may not know in order to make a new friend. Alexandra Dahlström was paired with a young woman named Ana Alcana at the event. Here is a very brief snippet from the Min Nya Vän event. You can see Alexandra and Ana at the 1:13 mark.
A special on short films aired December 21st on SVT. One segment featured interviews with Alexandra Dahlström, Alexandra “Kissie” Nilsson and Ahang Bashi. I’ve uploaded the videos and you can watch them by clicking the image below. No English subtitles available unfortunately. As usual – I recommend VLC Media Player. (Edit: Thanks to Fish for finding a better quality video!)
Here is a stunning photo of Alexandra from a photo shoot with Eva Edsjö posted along with an interview on Frihet. I will have to translate the article as it’s in Swedish but I wanted to post the photo in the meantime.
