PSYCHOSIS IN STOCKHOLM

by Maria Bäck

synopsis

20 years ago, Maria Bäck went on vacation to Stockholm with her mother. It ended with her mother having a mental breakdown – and the 14-year-old Maria wandering around in the capital city alone. With the help of actors Josefin Neldén and Josefine Stofkoper, she has now processed the experience in this feature film debut. Through off-color blonde jokes, poetic doubles, and a street choir singing Bob hund songs, the director creates an equally powerful as sensible film about human yearning and the diffuse borders of existence.
