Broken Hill Blues [Ömheten]
Directed By: Sofia Norlin
2013 / Swedish / 80 min
Norlin’s visual poetry follows a group of teenagers about to become adults in a small town in the far North of Sweden. As the earth around them shakes and rattles from the mine underneath it, we are confronted with the vulnerability of these restless characters as they dream of change and dig for a better future.
