Girls Talk/Tjejsnack

 

Three short documentaries by Hanna Heilborn & David Aronowitsch

Girls Talk/Tjejsnack is a part of the campaign "There are a lot of reasons not to do drugs" screened in MTV 2006. The films are based on interviews with two girls of nineteen. They are talking about their addiction and describe both the appeal of drugs and the backsides. The films explore visually the story without exposing the subjects and use a variation of techniques like animation and infrared cameras. The work of finding new visual solutions and to tell stories in non-traditional ways that started in Hidden continues.

The films were awarded a "Silver Egg" in the The Golden Egg award. And Nominated for The Kolla award.

Ikon

A forum for short documentaries

From 1999 to 2002 Story produced the television program Ikon for the Swedish Television. Ikon focused on the short creative documentary. Short documentaries can be funny, dramtic, experimental and drastic. Animations and art films with a documentary base were also screened in Ikon. Young talented filmmakers made films and more experienced filmmakers could experiment. 122 films were screened in 34 programs. During four years the short documentary genre in Sweden got production money and a window in Public-service Television. A majority of the films were commissioned but there were also acquisitions of Swedish and foreign films. Ikon-films have been in festivals all over the world and received international awards.

Suburban Songs/165 Hässelby

A feature 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.

En film om Olle Ljungström/A film about Olle Ljungström

A documentary by Jacob Frössén

I januari 2006 ringde Jacob Frössén upp Olle Ljungström utan att känna honom särskilt väl för att fråga om han fick göra en film om honom. Olle bemötte idén med stor entusiasm ”Du anar inte hur smickrad jag blir...” ”Du får filma allt förutom när jag går på toaletten”, med dom orden på minnet har regissören Jacob Frössén nu följt Olle de senaste tre åren.
 
Största delen av filmen filmade Jacob själv, en medveten tanke, det var viktigt att känna att det inte fanns ett filmteam bakom kameran och i kulisserna. Detta gav resultat i att han och Olle kom varandra väldigt nära under filmandet, vilket har avspegling i filmen.

Olle Ljungströms karriär började i bandet Reeperbahn i slutet av 70-talet och följdes upp på 90-talet som hyllad soloartist, de senaste åren har varit tysta men nu är äntligen något på gång. Detta är filmen om mannen som slog igenom som mycket ung och sedan dess levt mer än de flesta.

At Night I Fly

A feature-length documentary by Michel Wenzer

WINNER OF THE GULDBAGGE / SWEDISH FILM AWARD 2012 FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY.

At Night I Fly is a poetic testimony from a secluded world. New Folsom is one of the strictest prisons in the USA. A brutal world with riots, heavily armed guards and murders between rivaling gangs. In the middle of this there is also hope. In the film we meet several prisoners sentenced to life who take part in the programme Arts in Correction, where they meet over racial borders and gang hierarchies. These men have grown during their time in prison, they have learnt what it really means to be a human being. At night I Fly is film about the power of art.

While southern Europe is crumbling, Angola is the world’s fastest growing economy. In Africa’s rapidly developing cities, urban musicians are creating sounds that have come to define the new generation. Urban music like kuduro, coupé-décalé and azonto have arisen out of social change and have come to define a new African identity shaped by post-colonial consciousness. In a six part television series, the ”Fonko” team will meet the most exciting musicians, djs and bloggers from Angola, Senegal, Nigeria and other countries in their home environments, as well as international artists who have been influenced by modern African music.

Sara-Vide Ericson

A documentary about Swedish artist Sara-Vide Ericson by Jacob Frössén

Jag börjar alltid med att iscensätta mina målningar in i minsta detalj, i en typ av ritual eller performance. Sen fotograferar jag det och det blir en skiss, som jag sen släpper - för att helt låta måleriet ta över.”

Konstnären Sara-Vide Ericson vägrar ligga lågt med sin egen uppfattning av världen. Det är i hennes målningar och bildvärld, som saker som kan uppfattas som genant och högst personligt, kan bli till något äkta och allmängiltigt.

Ofta saknar jag någonting som kan funka som en metafor för en känsla, eller för något ordlöst, men som vi alla delar. Det behövs avtryck av de tillstånd som vi inte kan beskriva, de saker som vi hela tiden upplever i vår medvetna eller omedvetna värld. Ni vet, de där undermedvetna förnimmelserna som rör upp saker inom oss, utan att vi vet var de kom från och framförallt var de höll till - tills nu.

Jacob Frösséns film dokumenterar startskedet av en ung konstnärs karriär. Vi får under en intensiv period följa hennes liv och skapandeprocess; från källarlokalen ”Ateljé Framstjärten” i Stockholm, till det stora ljusa rummet i det gamla kråkslottet ute på landet. Likaså följer vi utvecklingen från den första separatutställningen på det ansedda Galleri Magnus Karlsson i Stockholm, till den andra på samma galleri två år senare, via bl.a. en utställning i New York.

Ett närgånget porträtt av en ung konstnärs liv, där strävan efter att realisera sina visioner inte alltid är helt lätt och självklart. Speciellt inte i en omvärld som vill definiera det du gör, i relation till om du är man eller kvinna.

-

Outspoken and brazenly open, Swedish painter Sara-Vide Ericson makes her most intimate relationships the subject of her art. Filmmaker Jacob Frössén follows Ericson from her first solo exhibition in 2010 through to her second big exhibition at the prestigious Galleri Magnus Karlsson in Stockholm. As her personal life takes twists and turns, her artistic expression finds new forms. Based on intimate footage of the artist at work in her atelier, on trips to New York, and in her home in the countryside, the film focuses on relationships and how personal and creative journeys influence one another.

Premieres December 28, 19.00 on SVT.

The director’s uncle Dodo passes by Bobi Bar in central Copenhagen a couple of times a week to knock back a tomato juice or two. There he meets his ideological foe, Kaj, a Danish People’s Party man. They cannot stand one another, but are unable to resist each other’s company. ”Everybody else is afraid to talk to me, they stare mutely into their magazines, but Kaj, at least you talk, even though most of what you say is rubbish”, says Dodo. They argue over Muslims, Swedes and capitalism with equal amounts of hostility and humor. A political dark comedy about today’s most contagious ideology – nationalism.

A reluctant anti-hero of the Swedish music scene, de la Cour made a name for himself as singer in the groups Yvonne and Strip Music in the 1990s and 2000s while battling with cystic fibrosis since he was a child. Filmmaker Jacob Frössén’s film portrays de la Cour’s struggle with a rare disease that he has kept secret for most of his life, and which has largely influenced the dark and moving music he makes. A film about confronting your own mortality and making the most of it, the creative process as a desire to create light out of darkness, and about music as a form of personal survival.

Wanlov the Kubulor, en av Ghanas mest kontroversiella artister. 

20 september kl 19.00 har Fonko premiär på SVT2. Fonko är en serie om det nya Afrika sett genom storstadsmusiken. Berättare är Neneh Cherry.

Vår tids stora musikaliska revolution pågår just nu i Afrika och påverkar hundratals miljoner människor. Kuduro, coupé-décalé och azonto är klubbmusik byggd på traditionella rytmer och har blivit identitetsbärande för en hel generation. Fonko är en dokumentärserie om musik och dramatisk samhällsomvandling.

Medan Sydeuropa står på ruinens brant är länder som Angola, Ghana, Nigeria och Zambia bland världens snabbast växande ekonomier. Den hastiga moderniseringen innebär minskad fattigdom, men också ökande inkomstklyftor, sekularisering och konflikter mellan tradition och modernitet. Allt det här speglas i musiken.
I Fonko får man träffa de smartaste och roligaste artisterna, bloggarna och producenterna i deras hemmiljöer. I kåkstäder, lyxvillor och på scen.

En tv-serie av Lamin Daniel Jadama, Lars Lovén, Göran Hugo Olsson och Tobias Janson.
Berättad av Neneh Cherry
