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.
The trailer for Antingen-eller aka Either/Or was posted to Elin Övergaard’s Vimeo account about a week ago and this time there are English subtitles!
Some news about the mysterious film Alexandra Dahlström is attached to called Landet. It’s a 22 minute short film by Elin Övergaard and seems to have been renamed to Antingen-eller which translates to Either Or.
A small cottage deep in the countryside. 22-year old Elliot (Rasmus Luthander) has escaped the superficial everyday he could no longer endure. But the outside world is hanging over him as a constant threat.
Suddenly, a taxi drives up – out steps his sister Torild (Alexandra Dahlström). This is the first time the siblings have seen each other since Elliot left her and their sick mother back home. Her wish: he must come home. Now. He needs to stop hiding, come home and take responsibility for his life and his family.
This is a movie about two siblings who for the first time, address a family crisis and confront each other’s conflicting perspectives on life.
