Nice People

February 22, 6:30 p.m.
Join the Somali Museum and the American Swedish Institute to celebrate this unique multi-cultural sports team story! Young men who fled the war in Somalia now live in a rural Swedish town where integration is tough. Local entrepreneur Patrik Andersson gets an idea; why not use sports to bring people together? The goal: to create the first ever Somali national bandy team and make it to the World Championship in Siberia. This is a story about racism and fear, but also about bravery and facing new challenges. Directors Karin af Klintberg, Anders Helgeson. 


Short Films Compilation 

March 8, 1 p.m. and March 15th, 6:30 p.m.
With a rich and exciting variety of styles, these short films show the breadth and quality of contemporary Swedish filmmaking. Highlighting images and voices seldom found in the cinema, the films share an unmistakable Nordic streak of dark humor. Compilation from Uppsala International Short Film Festival.
