Smågodis, katter och lite våld

If you like your queer film, fanciful, dark, provocative and a bit f****d up, then this is for you. Swedish Candy, Some Violence and a Bit of Cat takes us down the the rabbit hole of the truly bizarre and into the psychotic, co-dependent, lesbian relationship of two cousins; all acted out in a pale blue and lime green Ikea set. Wait for the genius rendition of Charlene's “I've never been to me” and keep your eye on the pussycat.
Shadow Animals | dir Jerry Carlsson / Sweden | 2017 | 22min
A young girl follows her parents to a party, where she observes the increasingly weird behaviour of the adults, who appear to be under some kind of hypnosis and living in a beige, cult hell. This cleverly made film exploring human behaviour and the desire to fit in, is told from the perspective of the young Marall, who naturally questions the odd rituals and wonders why no one else can see the shadows lurking beneath the surface.
