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:...

DIRECTOR: Helena Ahonen, Max Andersson - SWEDEN

WE ARE THE BEST!

DIRECTOR: Lukas Moodysson - SWEDEN

Stockholm, 1982: 13-year-old best friends Bobo and Klara are united by their feelings of outsiderness—embarrassed by their parents, repulsed by the conformity of the school’s popular kids, and hating gym class. After wandering into the local community center music room and banging on the instruments, they declare themselves a punk band—never mind that they can’t play a lick. In need of some proper musicianship, they recruit their classmate Hedvig—a talented guitarist, though painfully shy and socially marginalized by her parents’ unfashionable enthusiasm for evangelical Christianity. Now a trio, the three friends create a joyful noise as they play music together...
