A film called "She’s Blonde Like Me".

"The artist Fia-Stina Sandlund and actress Alexandra Dahlstrom travel to the Biennial in Venice to present a performance of a director who will make the Strindberg play "Miss Julie" in a feminist reinterpreted movie version. Fia-Stina and Alex met at the airport and prepare appearance in Venice, but something is obviously wrong. Or? Perhaps the failure actually? This is at once both an entertaining and visually interesting portrayal of the artistic process and a multifaceted examination of power play in relation to gender and the media. The scenes in which a medium conveys how August Strindberg's spirit is now regretting that he was killing Miss Julie, are quite hilarious.

Directed by: Fia-Stina Sandlund, Sweden / Italy, 2011

Nothing new to add, I’m afraid. But maybe a better translation (if translation at all?). At least I was able to understand a bit more.

She’s Blonde Like Me

Artist Fia-Stina Sandlund and actress Alexandra Dahlström travel to the Venice Biennale for a performance about a director producing a play by August Strindberg. Miss Julie is about to be reinterpreted in femininist fashion. Fia-Stina and Alexandra meet up at Arlanda airport and prepare for their performance, but apparently something goes wrong. Or does it? Is, perhaps, the fiasco the actual perfomance? This is both an entertaining and visually interesting look at the artistic process and a multi-faceted study of powerplay as it relates to gender and media. The scenes wherein a medium conveys how Strindberg's spirit regrets killing off Miss Julie are fairly priceless.

That's a much better translation.
At least I can understand that one. :roll:

I hope this gets a DVD release, I would love to see it.
So much of Alex's stuff we just never get to see. :(

She's too cute. :D

And yes, it does suck. It sucks even more that there's some stuff you COULD get - like Truth or Dare on dvd - but sans subtitles, what would be the blinkin' POINT?! :T

And another one from the Elle Galan.
Sadly I haven't found a bigger version yet and this one loses focus too quickly to enlarge.
