The student campus Flogsta was built in Uppsala, Sweden, in the 1970’s. Since then the Flogsta roar has happened every evening at 22.00. This is the moment when hundreds of students unleash their anxiety at the same time and scream out of the windows. A very unique tradition.
”The Flogsta Roar” is a 18 minutes short documentary for TV and film festivals. Director and producer Johan Palmgren.
“De mänskliga rättigheterna är universella och gäller för alla och envar. De slår fast att alla människor, oavsett land, kultur och sammanhang, är födda fria och lika i värde och rättigheter.”
De mänskliga rättigheterna talar sitt tydliga språk, men varför behövs det då ändå frivilligorganisationer runt de rättslösa för att överleva i Sverige?
Detta är en film som undrar om en människa kan vara illegal enbart genom att finnas till. Vad är svenskt och vem är svensk? Vad innebär gemenskap och hur känns det att stå utanför? Hur ser det ut där, dit mänskliga rättigheter inte når?
To promote their book BOSNIAN FLAT DOG, Swedish comics creators Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson tour the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummyfied Marshal Tito in a refrigerator.
Watching border controls turn into improvised snapshot sessions, admiring mutant iron-curtain Disney toys, buying souvenir grenade shell handicrafts and discovering sniper art galleries in blown-out apartments, they find that truth may indeed be stranger than fiction.
Max Andersson’s feature film debut operates on multiple levels to achieve a rare synthesis of form and content. The combination of animated crumbling, fragmentary garbage characters and grainy black and white super 8 mixed with documentary MiniDV looks like nothing else but seems perfectly natural.
A roller coaster ride through a parallel universe where all borders are disintegrating – at the same time tragic, poetic and hilariously funny.
I AM ELEVEN is a life-affirming global portrait of humanity at a crucial age – no longer children, not quite adults, preparing to inherit a world changing as quickly and dramatically as they are. This documentary focuses on a series of eleven-year-olds from 15 countries, each speaking in their own words and revealing the private obsessions and public concerns that animate their lives. It is simultaneously an epic survey of the similarities and distinctions between cultures and an intimate account of these young personalities finding their way in the world today.
Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey set off around the world to produce this documentary feature film and online project.
Eleven-year-olds share, in different languages their thoughts on a range of subjects issues such as love, war, global warming, music, terrorism, culture, family, happiness, religion and the future. Each of their situations allows a single glimpse into a young mind, and combine to provide a powerful insight into the future of our world. As straight up and personal as the ‘7 Up Series’, and with the comedy and honesty of ‘Spellbound’, this documentary enables us to explore an age where these ‘not quite kids, not quite teenagers’ briefly linger, between the frank openness and sometimes naivety of childhood, and the sharp and surprisingly brave wisdom and knowing of adulthood. As much as it is a story about them, it is a story with them, of what it is like to be eleven today. This documentary and www.iameleven.com presents strikingly personal portrayals of a generation exploring their take on personal and global issues. We invite you to leave comments and interact with our subjects.

Did Adolf Hitler survive WWII and live on under an assumed identity? Norwegian researcher Skule Antonsen sides with Spanish documentary filmmaker Idelfonso Elizalde to follow in the footsteps of Adolf Munchenhauser, a Hitler look alike captured by the Allied forces in Berlin 1945. When Munchenhauser is released from Camp Rebecca in 1946, a secret prison camp in the Nevada Desert, he decides to stay in the U.S. Skule digs into Munchenhausers life and hears a lot of stories, but none of them reveal his real identity. Is it possible that Adolf Munchenhuser really was Adolf Hitler? As Skule digs deeper for the truth it becomes clear that there are powerful forces that will do anything to stop him.
