Ester Martin Bergsmark, Director, Co-Screenwriter and Editor, Something Must Break.
Festival Section: Hivos Tiger Awards Competition.
Filmmaker Ester Martin Bergsmark talks to FRED about his film SOMETHING MUST BREAK (Nånting måste gå sönder), which was presented at the 43rd International Film Festival Rotterdam.
‘It should smell of strong emotions’, Bergsmark has said of his debut. And it does, this love story set in Stockholm in summer, between androgynous Sebastian (who likes to dress as ‘superwoman’ Ellie) and Andreas, who is not gay. Together against the smoothed-over, blunted IKEA society.
