… in documentary filmmaking, at Malmö Högskola (Malmö University), ceremony tomorrow. Bravo! A very well deserved appreciation of their work as documentarians with films that have gone all over the world: Fredrik Gertten with debate creating films like ”Bikes vs. Cars” (2015), ”Bananas” and ”Big Boys Gone Bananas” (2009, 2011), Magnus Gertten with a film on legendary Björn Afzelius ”Tusan Bitar” and two beautiful films on concentration camp survivors arriving to Malmö, ”Harbour of Hope” and ”Every Face Has a Name”. Both of them have, through their companies, served as producers for Swedish filmmakers and have co-produced internationally.
Look at the photo (taken by Pierre Mens), Magnus to the left, Fredrik to the right, and in the middle a young football player named Ibrahimovic from Malmö, who after a fantastic international career right now plays, when he is not injured, for Manchester United. ”Becoming Zlatan” was their common film from 2016 based primarily on material that goes 25 years back.
