Kim Ekberg

Hampus and Olivia, former Ex on the beach-participants and influencers, struggle to maintain their work and relationship in Norrköping, Sweden. Director Kim Ekberg struggled a long time to finance the short film about his brother Hampus and his girlfriend. Unfortunately the couple break up and the previous script needs to be remade, and suddenly it becomes a film with an unexpected meta-level. Now it’s a movie about moving forward without each other instead, as well as a film about the vain attempts to capture reality on celluloid.

Semi-abstract youtuber-breakup feelgood starring first time actors Hampus Ekberg & Olivia Hedlund.
