Acclaimed documentarian and noted Cinefile Mark Cousins moves into fiction with this intriguing musical film, perhaps best described as a city symphony. Stockholm My Love follows the footsteps of Alva Achebe (Cherry), a Swedish architect fascinated by the way buildings influence lives, but haunted by a tragic event in her past. On the anniversary of this shocking event, she’s at breaking point and can’t face the day ahead, so gets lost in the historic city of Stockholm. But her wanderings only draw her back towards her past, and the site of her tragedy. There she starts to take her first hesitant steps towards recovery.
Stockholm My Love screens on general release from Fri 16 June.
We will be joined by director Mark Cousins for a Q&A on Sat 17 June at 18:00.
