American Graffiti
After an intensive period of the festival, you might think Sunday left untouched but no! In contrast, we are turning on the big drum by presenting two magical acts ,one making this their second gig at the film festival. Musical artist Hans Appelqvist invites us on a Sunday mist in the form of fantasies set to music of the animal world. In collaboration with KB West presented the newly established group Amazon.

Friends Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Amanda Hollingby (Idiot Wind), Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette) and Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow) decided to make music under the motto that it should not be difficult. They spent a few days in the studio and came up with some ideas. The ideas became songs. The songs for recordings.
The band brings equal parts of their past and the music may take the form accordingly. There is no clear vision of the future, but they will continue as long as it feels good. “If you do not have access to other chemical aids, we hope that this can combine / transform the experience of a drive through Dalarna with / on a journey through big sur. Otherwise, a combination recommended. “Greets Amazon.

Leave Sunday boredom at home and came to Pustervik for one last film festival orgy. (We do not believe the fine folks at GIFF are implying that there have been multiple orgies throughout the festival and that tonight is the final one. We are both saddened and disappointed by this discovery.)

So there’s no let up in the proceedings at the 2013 Gothenburg International Film Festival as happy Wednesday continues to bring everyone at Pustervik, and in Gothenburg, smiles and joy. We’ve had none other than Wallace and Gromit’s main man & Animator Peter Lord in the house today. Peter has been entertaining Pustervik’s guests since 2PM with some unique insights into his career and working life.

Peter Lord isn’t the only big name involved in a seminar today, with provocative Austrian film-maker Ulrich Seidl sharing his unique viewpoints and discussing his films at 3.45. Seidl has directed critically acclaimed and award-winning features such as Dog Days (2011) and Import/ Export (2007). Pustervik is again the host for this interesting chat.

Of course the film festival isn’t just about seminars and music, there’s the films themselves as well. And like every other day at this fine celebration of world cinema, there’s plenty of fascinating films being shown across this sunny city of ours. 8-Ball is in contention for the Dragon Award Best Nordic Film, and you can catch this hard-hitting, gritty Finnish offering at 5.30PM. If you miss it on happy Wednesday, then don’t panic – it’s showing tomorrow, Friday and Saturday.

With so much variety and depth on offer at the festival, lets have a look at a couple of other films showing Wednesday. So why not go and watch Den grona cykeln – the first film to be directed by a Saudi Arabian woman – at Chalmers later on. As well as being the first film directed by a Saudi woman, it’s also the first film to be shot entirely in the Arab state. So come along, get involved and make the most of this wonderful festival. And keep on listening in and supporting Nordic Vibrations for all your festival updates, music and news.
