We are happy to have Karin Ekberg presenting A separation at the 33rd International Film Festival of Uruguay.
Thanks to the Swedish Institute and Nordic Culture Fund we had the opportunity to have the Director visiting the festival and be a part of the Cine Nordic. A separation was screened twice and the following Q&As was popular.
The director says: -“It was exiting to be at the South American premiere screening of A separation in Montevideo. The reception was very positive and the audience was active and asked many questions. Many more than I expected had links to Sweden since they was refugees during the 1970-80’s. Many were in my parents’ age and their lives had taken unexpected ways, their relationships had been tested by migration and break-ups. They seemed deeply touched by the movie. Personally, I was moved by Uruguay’s hospitality and hope to soon be able to return.”
