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.
The premiere of UFOPODDEN took place on February, 22, 2017 at Fotografiska in Stockholm.
UFOPODDEN is an eight part radio drama series presented by Swedish Radio Drama P3 and is airing on a weekly basis. If you understand Swedish you can listen to the podcasts on their website. The podcasts are about mysteries and encounters with the unknown. It sounds similar to the TV show Black Mirror or The Twilight Zone but in radio format.
Alexandra Dahlström attended the premiere and DJ-ed alongside her friend Andreas Kleerup.
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.
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.
If you follow Alexandra on Instagram you may already know that she was directing a music video for the Swedish band Teddybears called Shades On.
Alexandra has made the music video available on her Vimeo page recently.
There’s a cameo near the end of Helena af Sandeberg (Alexandra’s Blondie co-star) which was a nice surprise! I did not see Alexandra in the video but it’s a good watch and the song is very upbeat and catchy.
Not much Alexandra related news because she’s too busy traveling her pretty little self from Stockholm to Germany to the US to… where is she now? You can follow her adventures on her Instagram page which is a real treat!
Dunja Vujovik’s Love Revisited which features Adam Lundgren and Alexandra Dahlström is set to premiere at the Gothenburg International Film Festival which is in progress as I type this! It started January 29th and will run through February 8th.
Jennifer wakes up with a proper headache and unsure of what actually happened last night. She finds unpleasant clues in her home and her anxiety rises. When the doorbell rings, she suspects the worst but is pleasantly surprised that she has forgotten her Tinder date.
Do you remember that “mystery music video” that Alexandra was supposedly directing last summer while she was in Los Angeles? Well, the mystery is solved! This is the music video for Giorgio Moroder feat. Sia called Déjà Vu. It premiered yesterday on YouTube and I must say I really like the song! You’ll see Lisa Pyk, Julia Gahne and Alexandra Dahlström among the girls in the blonde wigs.
It’s always fun to come across older things involving Alexandra Dahlström. I accidentally came across this YouTube video awhile back. It’s from the 69th Venice Film Festival, which if you’ll remember, is where Blondie premiered in 2012.
