Combined digital & physical screening on September 15th, 7PM CEST
The opening programme of the screenings series FILMFORM RE:VIEW reflects the hollowness of the urban space with the Swedish capital city as the cultural battleground. Writer Nathan Hamelberg has selected a set of films that on the one hand are documents from another time – mainly with a focus on the space for youth (or lack thereof) in Stockholm – and on the other hand are wholly new to most people. FILMFORM RE:VIEW is a format where external professionals and organizations from spheres of culture or research are invited to botanize in Filmform’s collection. Starting off from their specific areas of interest and questions a film programme is curated and thereafter presented as an open screening at Filmform.
This programme is shown as a physical screening at Filmform on Svarvargatan 2 (Stockholm, Sweden) and simultaneously live streamed at the Filmform website.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current pandemic special restrictions apply for those who wish to attend the physical screening. Admission is reduced to a maximum of 15 people. The ticket price is 50 kr. You book a ticket by RSVPing to firstname.lastname@example.org after which you will receive information about the different payment options and confirmation. First come, first served. We urge those who experience even the slightest symptoms to stay at home and enjoy the live streamed version of the screening.

Vad ska vi göra nu då
Notes From Underground
What emotions seep from the margins of a metropole? From the capital of Sweden? How do new generations discover cracks to slide in through and into a well-planned and well-ordered city? How did one become one of the people in a society you had yet to fit into? I’ve selected a set of films that on the one hand are documents from another time – mainly with a focus on the space for youth (or lack thereof) in Stockholm – and on the other hand are wholly new to most people. What can art film and documentary film say about identity and space and the dominant view of youth in society? How are youth seen – or depicted – in optimistic film reels of yesterday, and what is absent in the pictures of anti-social youth?”
