My friend Moa Junström’s new film Staden ocg Jag (“The City and I”) recently had its Stockholm debut at the Tempo Documentary Festival.
The film is her own personal tale of her relationships with her father, her family and growing up with the city of Stockholm as a backdrop. It’s about as touching and sweet as a film can get in 14 minutes. The film bears her heart as well as the stark realities of how the city’s housing affects everything from relationships to happiness.
I spent the weekend seeing it and a number of other fantastic documentary films. I also was lucky enough to attend the awards ceremony and filmmakers’ after party. It was a fantastic weekend and Moa’s film took home the New Docs prize, a great honor as well as a pile of cash!
Here are a few photos from the weekend. You can see Moa’s K Composite interview at this link: kcomposite.com/moa
