With our PR & Press Manager Ulrika Grönérus as the host, our own talk show Studio Draken had a sneak première today at department store NK in the centre of Göteborg. The directors of our closing film Isolerad, Johan Lundborg and Johan Storm, talked about why they like mixing horror with comedy. Pål Hollender, director of documentary Finding Ali, talked about his return to Afghanistan 10 years after his last documentary United States of Afghanistan. It was much harder for him to talk to people this time – in general people were much more suspicious and hostile.
Both films are competing at GIFF: Isolerad for the Swedish Church Award which goes to one of the Swedish feature film premières, and Finding Ali both for the Swedish Church Award and for the Dragon Award for Best Swedish Documentary
