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.
Fish tracked down a new old photo of Alexandra Dahlström from back during the filming of Show Me Love. It was from Lukas Moodysson’s Tumblr account that he happened to find in a box. I’d like to see what else he has just lying around!
It’s a rare day when I come across a Fucking Åmål photo that I haven’t seen! A French band called Cabaret Voltaire posted a YouTube video for a song called Crackdown using the photo below. As far as I know the song is not affiliated with the film. Here’s Alexandra Dahlström together with Erica Carlson from back in 1998.
A lot of you are already aware that Alexandra Dahlström was a Russian interpreter and assistant director on the set of Lukas Moodysson’s film Lilja 4-ever back in 2002. Rumour has it that Alexandra makes a brief cameo and can be seen on a balcony when Lilja is carving her name into the bench outside. I did find a blonde hanging out on the balcony in that scene. Could it be Alexandra?
And if you’re interested in watching Lilja 4-ever it’s available in full on YouTube along with English, Swedish and Russian subtitles – just turn on the Closed Captioning.
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.
Can you believe it’s been 15 years yesterday since Fucking Åmål was released? In honor of it’s 15th anniversary Radio Sweden did an interview with director Lukas Moodysson. The audio is in Swedish so I can’t understand it. I need to learn the language it would make things so much easier! Haha!
