Jamal is recently divorced and operations manager at the primary school where Leya went as a child. He struggles to give his young students better opportunities, but the school management prefers to see further savings.

On the streets, the climate is more brutal than ever. Ravy is under pressure from all sides, both from the police and their new methods and from the competitor Zaki. The market is screaming for more drugs, the wholesalers are ready to deliver. The question is whether the gangs can produce enough dealers, preferably as young as possible?

Freakscene - the story of Dinosaur Jr

by Philipp Virus. US, 2022, Documentary. Swedish premiere.

 

FREAKSCENE THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR. is a homage of one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene – including Nirvana and Sonic Youth – in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred as “Grunge”, laid the foundation for the entire “Slacker” culture of Generation X.

 

It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music. Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak.

 

An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family – Dinosaur Jr. Through several decades, the film offers rare insights into the crazy everyday life of the band and illuminates the inner workings of a cult band from its beginnings in the 1980s and 90s to the present day.

My name is Andrea

by Pratibha Parmar. USA, 2022, Documentary. Swedish premiere.


MY NAME IS ANDREA is a hybrid feature documentary about one of the most controversial figures of the 20th century. Andrea Dworkin offered a revolutionary analysis of male supremacy with a singular urgency and iconoclastic flair. Decades before #MeToo, Dworkin called out the pervasiveness of sexism and rape culture, and the ways it impacts every woman’s daily existence. The film focuses on key moments in the life of this fearless fighter who, shaped by the values of justice and equality learned in the civil rights movement, demanded that women be seen as fully human. Woven in with rare, electrifying archival footage of Dworkin are performances by Ashley Judd, Soko, Amandla Stenberg, Andrea Riseborough, and Christine Lahti, who bring Dworkin’s powerful words to life.

 

Written and Directed by: Pratibha Parmar
Based on the writings of: Andrea Dworkin
Produced by: Shaheen Haq

 

Lead Cast(in order of appearance): Ashley Judd Soko, Amandla Stenberg, Andrea Riseborough, Allen Leech, Christine Lahti

This is a film about a bunch of crazy and derailed 20-year-olds who, after all, manage to establish themselves and break with expectations and go their own way. With music as a lifeline.
