NEW SWEDISH SHORTS – Offbeat!

Six  new  Swedish  short  films  that  all  opened  at  festivals  such  as  Cannes, Sundance,  Tribeca,  and  Toronto.  Among  the  filmmakers  we  find  the director and actress Bahar Pars (A Man Called Ove), Amanda Kernell (Sami Blood) as well as one of the world’s most successful animator right now, Niki Lindroth von Bahr.

It’s not always easy to go with the flow. In short doc The Traffic Separating Device the car drivers are struggling with the temporary traffic devices set up at Stockholm’s Slussen, in The Turk Kiosk an employee opposes another one and the vibe at the office turns uncomfortable, in Wolf Charlie is struggling with the village’s expectation to look at the wolf as the enemy, in coming-of-age film We Were Three a defiant joke at the wrong place leads to a brutal entrance to adulthood, in the puppet animated festival sensation The Burden the alienated workers sing out their frustration – in classic al Hollywood  musical style, finally in I Will Always Love You Kingen Conny has a hard time doing the obvious  when his girlfriend is going to give birth – and escapes.

The characters might be a little offbeat, but these films are groovy.
