European Film Promotion (EFP) presents ten outstanding young directors from Europe with their latest work at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival every year. In this interview, we meet Jonatan Etzler from Sweden, about his short film Get Ready With Me. In this interview, the director discusses social media, traumas and other themes his film deals with, and more.

Get Ready With Me: When Lukas asks his students to shoot a short film about their lives, he has no idea what might happen. Indeed, timid Vendela’s movie launches a chain of ridicule, bullying, and accusations that even the teacher can’t escape. Get Ready With Me exposes the cruel nature of the present day, where a cellphone can be a weapon and likes mean everything.
