EAT SLEEP DIE

DIRECTOR: Gabriela Pichler - SWEDEN

Winner of the Audience Award at the Venice Film Festival and the top Swedish national Guldbagge Awards, Pichler’s remarkable film profiles 20-year-old Raša, a woman struggling to support herself and her father in a southern Swedish village. Despite being an efficient worker, Raša is the first to go when the packing plant starts firing staff. Since she has Bosnian Muslim heritage, her dismissal stings with racial undertones. Jobless, Raša is then abandoned by her father when he leaves to seek work in Norway. Suddenly her small town seems even smaller and lonelier as she is confronted with a difficult choice: leaving her life behind for a new job elsewhere or permanent unemployment. The hard realities of modern Swedish, and global, society are depicted with profound emotional insight as Raša comes to terms with her life. (104 mins.)

First feature.

Sponsored by New Sweden, the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation, and the Consulate General of Sweden, San Francisco.
