WOW Talks

The Way Out West Pride (West Pride) took place during the festival this year. Alexandra Dahlström took part in a panel interview called Fucking Queer from Then to Now. It’s in Swedish only so I can’t give too much more information but it’s always nice to find new videos!
 

Way Out West!

The Way Out West festival took place in Gothenburg from August 10th – 12th this summer. Alexandra Dahlström attended the event and was part of the line-up this year. There was a screening of the newly digitized version of Fucking Åmål as well as many parties. See the gallery of photos below as well as an interview with Alexandra from Göteborgs-Posten.

Fucking Åmål Digital Screening

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.

If you’re interested in a few extra photos check them all out in the photo gallery. A lot of them were similar so I didn’t post them all here.

Throwback Thursday

Alexandra recently posted this behind the scenes gem from Fucking Åmål on her Instagram. Love it!

Digital Revival

In recent news – the film Show Me Love has become digitized which means it can now me shown properly on TV and in theatres. In the article I read on Sydsvenskan it also seems that there is going to be an interview (or at least a conversation) with Alexandra Dahlström & Rebecca Liljeberg!

The film was shot by an intricate analogue process that gave it a special grainy appearance. It has therefore not been digitized with sufficient quality until now. Earlier transfers to television and video has been deemed too dark and noisy.

On March 15 show Cinematheque in Stockholm on nydigitaliserade film and also offer a conversation with, among others protagonists Rebecka Liljeberg and Alexandra Dahlström, writes the Swedish Film Institute in a press release.

“Show Me Love” was seen by over 868,000 moviegoers, was awarded several Gold Rams and was praised internationally.
I really hope to see something online if this interview is happening. With the news about Show Me Love, there have also been some better quality photos popping up online from 1998 which are so hard to come by! For instance, this beauty which I’ve uploaded to the photo gallery.

What’s New?

What’s new? Well I’ve moved again. It seems to be an every 3 year thing with me. Anyways, it was a good move. All settled and back to my routine. I’ve been following Alexandra on Instagram and she’s been keeping very busy which is excellent to see! I hope we’ll get to see more of her in the media soon. In the meantime, I’ve found a teeny-tiny photo online and my best guess tells me it’s from 1998-ish. Here’s a very young Alexandra Dahlström with Rebecka Liljeberg taken by Magnus Jönsson.

Edit: I found a slightly larger version of the photo and have replaced the tiny one.

Extra from Show Me Love

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!

 

Breakfast in Åmål

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.

Then & Now

A “Then & Now” type list of Swedish celebrities was posted on the Stoppa Pressarna website today. Alexandra made the list! Among other familiar faces you’ll find Robyn, Carolina Gynning, Sissela Kyle, Alexander Skarsgård and Kristian Luuk.

In 2000, teenage girls across Sweden wanted to be like Elin from the film Show Me Love. She was played by Alexandra Dahlström, 30, who last played the younger sister of Carolina Gynning in the movie Blondie.
