Something Must Break
aka Nånting måste gå sönder
First screened in October 2014
Director: Ester Martin Bergsmark. Cast: Saga Becker, Iggy Malmborg, Shima Niavarani, Mattias Åhlén, Daniel Nyström, Nour El-Refai, Axel Petersén, Emil Almén. Screenplay: Ester Martin Bergsmark and Eli Levén (based on the novel by Eli Levén).

Twitter Capsule: Excitingly contemporary in binary-busting genders and desires. Gutsy style. Acute sense of character.

VOR:   Major leap for trans-centered cinema into Head-On levels of amour fou and sexual candor. Modern not just in theme but in deftly agitated edits and performances. Auspicious debut!
