For many years now we’ve given out the Stockholm Award to persons and happenings that was considerably important for the city the past year. The Entertainment guide jury has met on several occasions during 2009 and have debated back and forth, for and against, who exactly, are worthy of this award. The winner/winners will be awarded on February 26 at Södra Teatern (the South Theatre).
Tarik Saleh is the perfect symbol for the strong coming dominating state of mind among Swedish rookie movie makers – that anything really is possible. If you like the subway and politics and if you want to make a movie about it – why not make it an animated movie with a cast of American stars? And if you do decide that, it would be a shame if you let yourself be put down by the fact that you have way more experience as an editor for newspapers, filming documentaries and Fredrik Lindstroms second hand suits than you do by animating movies. Metropia isn’t just a good movie, it’s also a first class source for inspiration and a creative compass. We like that.
