Join us for “Realities in Contemporary Swedish Cinema,” featuring keynote speaker Anna Serner, VD of the Swedish Film Institute, and Swedish filmmaker Lisa Aschan (Apflickonrna/She Monkeys 2011, scripted by Johannes Anyuru), who will show clips from her new film The Deposit/Det vita folket, 2015!
All of this and more is on the annual Sweden Symposium program for ASTRA (Association of Swedish Teachers and Researchers in America) in Washington, DC the weekend of Oct. 22-24. Sweden’s Culture Minister, Alice Bah Kuhnke, is also attending our Thursday evening reception!
RSVP to Viktor Hennius <email@example.com> by Sept. 22. You must become an ASTRA member to participate–but dues are only a nominal $20/year! You can pay in advance by contacting treasurer Chip Oscarson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or just pay at the symposium. Note that this is NOT just for Swedish teachers or specialists–it is for all teacher/scholars with an interest in Sweden/Swedish film. Join us for a fantastic two days at the House of Sweden in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
