KIRUNA – RYMDVÄGEN (KIRUNA – SPACE ROAD)

«My Kiruna will be demolished and crushed to the ground.» When I first heard that they were going to relocate my hometown, I got scared, I panicked. What would happen to my memories? What would remain from the past? This is a film about my childhood neighborhood and the city I recall. It explores the city's construction around a big mine, as well as the city as monument over modern existence. The film also deals with reconciliation with one’s past, and the feeling of losing one's security.
