Suburban Songs/165 Hässelby

A documentary by Mia Engberg

Suburban Songs (165 Hässelby) is a film about Ayesha, Frazze, Julio and "Dino" who live in the high-rise blocks around Hässelby Gård. This is a film about wanting to change the world; about painting graffiti although you might end up in jail; about dealing with Swedish authorities when you don't speak Swedish that well; and about being expelled from school because you have ADHD. But above all, this is an homage to the suburbs ofStockholm, and to the people who live there.
