"Ulrika Stahre at the Gothenburg film festival"
"The small village of Newtok, Alaska, are disappearing. For each of the years erodes more and more of the little republics and the houses in danger to tumble down at the next autumn storm. Just over 300 inhabitants, of which by far the largest majority tvångsinflyttad nomadic indigenous people, living in a limbo."
"In the film Losing Alaska noted, time and again, two things: the village rages on, because of climate change. The permafrost thaws, the water level rises and the weather becomes more violent – and nothing has been done since the village rather belong to the third world than the first one: the poor people without influence, who must boil their water."
"Losing Alaska is included in the Gothenburg film festival the main theme of the Apocalypse. It is a straight-narrated, gentle and compassionate documentary, just like Welcome to the city of Sodom, which is a waste, almost a city, Agbogbloshie outside Accra, Ghana, also known as Sodom – and the people who live, or work, there."
"Last year meant, because of an unusually hot summer, huge fires and a skolstrejkande Greta Thunberg, an inconvenient but necessary klimatuppvaknande. So enough is the theme of the Apocalypse right in time."
"On the other hand, the film industry loved the end of the world how long – and how passionately – at any time: The Road, the Day after tomorrow. After the disaster movies, zombie movies, nuclear accidents, etc, etc, we Are obsessed by the destruction, in fictional form? So obsessed, perhaps so that it doesn't really make much of a difference to the poor africans poisoned by the rich world's elektroniksopor, when överflödets consequences reach Accra? Or to any peripheral by raging down in the sea?"
"the Apocalypse really means not destruction, but revelation, disclosure. It is required in other words, the more the apocalypse in order to avoid the apocalypse. But takes over world it is usually about other things."
"One who seeks to both prevent environmental pollution and to enlighten their fellow man is the protagonist, Halla, in the icelandic Benedict erling's feature film Woman at war. She is a frifräsande klimatterrorist, which combats the toxic aluminium industry with all the means at its disposal."
"the Greater part of the film, she is basically chased. Nevertheless, it is a humorous film, with the elegant means conveys hope and despair in equal parts. Klimatförnekelsen grown when skilled communicators manage to distort her relatively simple environmental message to be a call to terror on the ICE-level."
"Woman at war also offers a nod to the old dogmafilmer, with orchestras and choirs in impossible places. It offers so much of the creative joy that it apokalypstemat and the downfall and the environment becomes something that, yes, will arrange themselves. And it still sound fab."
"will do it not for the unfortunate pair of Antonio Tubléns Zoo. This has the ”infection” has taken over, zombies dominate the streets, and yet exposed to the virus barricades himself at home. So also our couple, who, thanks to these new trials will come closer to each other and to the end actually fall in love again. The downfall is a foundation for a romance film, which by the way also the is absurdistiskt fun. "
"Humor is possibly the correct disaster and ångesthanteringen. It certainly seems so if I am to judge based on my narrow selection. Fun feature films, documentaries full of seriousness. But also: people who work together. Fiction is fiction, but the fact is that cooperation means survival also in the real world tips and advice among the water tanks and vevradioapparater."
"Cooperation stands in contrast not the most powerful post-apocalyptic epic, Harry martinson's Aniara. This man has not only destroyed the earth, unclear in which way, by being its own biggest enemy. She continues to be on board on the way to eternity. The film Aniara, which had premiered at the Gothenburg film festival and goes up on the cinemas on Friday, disturbed a part of a styltig dialogue but that ångestframkallare it works at least as good as the original – I find it hard to imagine anything worse than to hover in space the rest of your life."
"the Dream of an unspoiled earth is on the Aniara the same dream as the term of the Woman at war dream: it is naturnärheten, birds, lakes, barfotapromenad in the moss. Something of a cliché but understandable if it is himself, the earth should be portrayed. But the desire is well as much to other living people, to a possible future."
"The idea is based German film In my room, where the main character Armin wakes up one morning and you are alone. All living humans have disappeared, all except for he. The whole thing evolve into a Robinson Crusoe story, but is also Aniara inverted. The earth is, untouched. The future need not be catastrophic. The desolate loneliness together in In my room the interaction with animals and nature, a sort of Eden if you want to. A new start for a man who is deemed as failed in the usual konkurrensvärlden."
"Movies that deals with a undergångstema, both documentaries or feature films are, by necessity, critical. And there is no doubt about what is criticized: the abundance, the waste, the constant growth, capitalism's inability to create other than goods and profits. Some laughing all the way to the bank – other giggling terrified in front of the zombiefilm."
