among the elves
by Kirsi Nevanti
A portrait of Swedish vocalist Freddie
Wadling, a legend among musicians in
Sweden. In this impressionistic journey
through Freddie Wadling's life and
thoughts, he moves from punk to medieval songs by John Dowland without
missing a beat. It becomes a drama about
improvisation as a way of life and music
as a way of survival. Filled with music, the
film also gradually reveals the image of a
fascinating personality, with connections
among the elves - "Nothing is true,
everything is possible".
Kirsi Nevanti was born in Finland in
1960, studied directing at Dramatiska
Institutet film school in Stockholm and
has directed a number of shorts, often
with musicians in focus. This is her first
feature-length film.

homo sapiens 1900
by Peter Cohen
This is a documentary about eugenics
and racial hygiene after the breakthrough
of modern biology around 1900. Ideas
about the perfection of mankind spread

In Germany and the Soviet Union this
process had fatal consequenses. The German racial hygiene concentrated on the
body, while eugenics in the Soviet Union
concentrated on the brain and intellect.
Peter Cohen directed the documentary
"Undergångens arkitektur/Architecture

kestrel's eye
by Mikael Kristersson
This is a documentary about a kestrel
family, living in the tower of an old village
church in the south-west of Sweden. It is

much an epic fiction feature film as an
ordinary wildlife film.

film school 1973-75. Has directed about
30 films, mostly documentaries for television. His best-known film is "Pica Pica"

PREMIÈRE 1995
the lighthouse
by Magnus Enquist, Kristian Petri & Jan Röed
"The Lighthouse" is an homage to
lighthouse culture and the disappearing
corps of dedicated lighthousekeepers. It is
the story of a journey in our time, in
history, in literature and myth, and will
take the viewer to some of the world's
most fascinating lighthouses.
The lighthouse is one of the most powerful
symbols created by mankind. We associate
the tower of the lighthouse and its
particular function with very specific
emotions: loneliness, longing, security and
vulnerability.
Kristian Petri (born in 1956) is a writer
and film director. His first feature
"Between Summers" (1995) was selected
for Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes.
Jan Röed directed "Bongo Beat" (1996).

Magnus Enquist once before, with the

zingo
by Christjan Wegner
A comedy about a young man with a
tendency to screw things up. After years
of unhealthy living he is looking for calm
and rest. But first he has to deal with a
drug-dealing debt. He teams up with his
cousin, who has spent five years writing a
film script, and turns into a film producer.
One of the problems is that the German
financiers expect a porn film....
