G - 21 Scenes from Gottsunda - Main still



World premiere: CPH:DOX 2024 / NEXT:WAVE

Gottsunda is one of Europe’s most drug infested areas and considered one of Sweden’s most dangerous suburbs, a so called ‘no-go-zone’. It is also the childhood home of our main character Loran Batti. Loran is an aspiring filmmaker who is striving to move from Gottsunda and start his career but is hesitant to leave his childhood friends behind, the only people who truly understand him. As the film progresses the friction between Loran and his friends grows stronger. They are active criminals while Loran has chosen another path for himself. He is trying to remember what it was like during the 90’s when they all grew up while battling the reality of anytime getting that call. That call from a crying mother about a lost brother.

"G" takes us behind the media’s narrow reflection of the violent suburb and gang violence in Sweden and into the community that lives the reality of Gottsunda. An unfiltered glimpse into an everyday life of conflict, community, fraternity and exclusion.
