This past Spring Alexandra Dahlström finished a short film called Banana Pancake Trail. It is directed by Johan Rosell and is set to screen at the Uppsala Film Festival on October 25th and on SVT sometime in January. Here you’ll find a scene between Alexandra Dahlström & costar Erik Bolin. There are no subtitles unfortunately and it’s only in Swedish. The video should load at the correct spot but if not you’ll want to tune in at 4 minutes, 58 seconds.
Maya has kept away from Sweden for the past years and lives a wandering life in Southeast Asia without any intention of ever returning. But when she finds out the only person she’s still in contact with back home only has days left to live, she quickly needs to get enough money together to pay for a plane ticket.
And so it begins! The 28th annual Stockholm International Film Festival has kicked off with its opening film Shape of Water at Biograf Skandia. Here is a photo of Alexandra on the red carpet with a yet-to-be-identified friend. I’m loving her new shorter hairstyle and that skirt is amazing!
My apologies for the lack of updates. My real life has been crazy busy with a new house, a new job and social obligations galore which is unusual for me. It’s that time of the year again and the Stockholm International Film Festival is approaching! This year it will take place from November 8th to November 19th and some goodies have already started to pop up online.
Firstly, Alexandra Dahlström will be presenting a work in progress called Drömfabriken on November 15th with Amna Maksumic.
Secondly, a trailer for Elin Övergaard’s short film Förebilder (Picture World) has been released. Alexandra appears in it but does not have any lines.
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.
