WHAT WE LEAVE BEHIND
Two men spent their youth squatting in a wall-split Berlin, and have recently gotten back in touch after 15 years of separation. The film is a tender, audio-driven portrait of the changes of the city, their friendship, and of growing old as a restless soul.
WHAT’S IMPORTANT NOW IS TO FEEL BAD
During a compulsory information meeting for unemployed people, the friendly face of a ridiculous, Kafkaesque bureaucracy exposes the truth behind unemployment. Unemployed people act as a deterrent to the rest of the population: they have to remain in their poorly paid jobs and continue consuming.
Like a correspondence, Vanja Sandell Billström and Reza Hazare create a collective view based on questions of privilege, responsibility, and how both memories and bodies are deformed by living under pressure as a result of stress and refuge.
THE POWER GRID
A boy stands beside a power plant in the inland of northern Sweden. This is a personal film about growing up surrounded by rich natural resources. About the production of power, colonialism, and a feeling grown from seeing, seeing anew, and questioning the things that surround you.
Mary tries to score the famous rockstar Julien by pretending she is a Swedish music journalist. To her surprise she succeeds in getting into Juliens suite. Mary thinks sex is on, until a monthly surprise turns up.
Two rats, a father and his son, live in a suburb of Stockholm. One day they find a cat in their home. The father throws it out, but more cats start appearing. This makes the father increasingly angry while the child starts to get fond of them.
