General Rehearsal for Suicide
Åke Karlung
3 min, 1964, 16mm to DCP, sound, colour

The film was an attack on the advancing pop culture and the art establishment. A musician cuts his leg with a saw at a happening at Moderna Museet in Stockholm and is likened to a victim of the contemporary art world. This film has been digitally restored by the Swedish Film Institute.

Last Days of Leningrad
Maria Zennström
28 min, 2016, 35mm to DCP, sound, colour, Russian and Swedish with English subtitles

A film about the poor intelligentsia, shot in a cramped flat in a city that was called Leningrad in 1989. Today, the people and the city where the film was shot no longer exist. The film becomes a time capsule.

We the Others
Maja Borg
8 min, 2014, super 8 to DCP, sound, colour, English

We the Others is a short cinematic poem about the value of physical diversity. From ancient philosophy to modern projections of a high tech future, there seems to be a question that we need to debate over and over: what is human value?

Reading Glass
Malin Pettersson Öberg
15 min, 2015, DCP, sound, colour, Swedish with English subtitles

In a time of disappearing industries and a society in transformation, Reading Glass reflects on the significance of glass for Swedish culture and modern society, through one slow and sideway camera movement in Scandinavia’s largest art glass collection.

Happy Days
Daniel Westlund
3 min, 2015, DCP, sound, colour

Auditorial chairs come to life in an orderly manner, in chaos and in a sleepy, vegetative slumber. The chairs appear to move on their own will and with different personalities. Sometimes they act as victims of circumstances, in free fall and as if thrown.

M-E: A Video Selfie
Emie // Eva-Marie Elg
14 min, 2015, DCP, sound, colour, English and Swedish with English Subtitles

The artist turns the camera on herself in a quest to explore historically feminine traditions from a film historic and psychological perspective. How will professional strangers such as psychics, psychologists and a dream interpreter define her?

Total duration 71 min
