Il Göteborg Film Festival svela un programma 2020 ricco, vario ed egualitario
Psychosis in Stockholm de Maria Bäck

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

“Brazil – never better, yet risking obliteration”. “Stellan Skarsgård – one of our greatest conquers the city”. “Anna Odell disrobes the male powers that be”. “Feminist film feast – we explore the contemporary feminist cinema”. “Half of the films of the festival directed by women”. “Over 400 films”.

Behold the dynamic taglines with which the Göteborg Film Festival sets out for its 43rd edition, taking place from 24 January to 3 February. But with all due respect to both Brazil and Stellan (worthy Career award laureate), it is the “half of the films directed by women” part that will most resonate. “We want to see the whole of the world,” reads the festival’s statement. “We do not just want to represent the film industry as it is, we want to inspire change.” The initiative has a simple, straightforward motto: “50/50 Vision”.

, in which the seemingly open-minded young journalist Hanna is faced with a Dad (and a vicar to boot) who now wishes to be called Marianne. Mårten Klingberg directs, with Sweden’s favourite Wallander Rolf Lassgård as the leading lady.

This year’s showstopper may well be Anna Odell, Sweden’s favourite mastermind when it comes to provocative experiments in the name of art. Odell’s latest concept introduces “The Gynaecological Cinema Chair”, which will be the centrepiece of her new film, The Examination. Here, eleven Swedish men, often well-known and invariably authoritative — they include Björn Eriksson, former director of the Swedish police, and Thomas Bodström, former minister of justice – are all asked to undergo a gynaecological exam. As a special treat for keener audience members, genuine samples of the very same chairs will also be available in the cinema for “interaction”. One must try everything at least once, right?

More “regular” but highly anticipated titles are to be found in Göteborg’s vital competition field, spearheaded by the eight films nominated for the Nordic Dragon Award. The 2020 contenders are Bäck’s Psychosis in Stockholm, Spring Uje Spring by Henrik Schyffert, Games People Play [+leggi anche:
