Theresa Traore Dahlberg

Welcome Theresa Traore Dahlberg!

9 October, 2013

Momento Film is very happy to welcome Theresa Traore Dahlberg as a new director! Theresa has previously directed the warm documentary Taxi Sister, which screened at several international film festivals, and we believe that she is one of the most interesting rising voices on the Swedish documentary scene. Characterized by a personal narrative and a strong visual imagery, her films have the ability to tackle serious and important social issues in a humorous manner. Currently Theresa is developing a project set in Burkina Faso, which she will start to film on location in November.

If you are interested in Theresa’s previous documentary, feel free to check out the trailer.

Frida Kempff to Sthlm Film Lab 2013

11 September, 2013

Momento Film director Frida Kempff is selected for Stockholm Film Lab, Stockholm International Film Festival’s talent program for young female directors. With support from the Swedish Film Institute, the program seek to encourage and inspire the directors on their way to a continued professional career.

Frida Kempff won the Jury Prize in the official selection in Cannes in 2010 with her short documentary, Bathing Micky. She is currently filming her first feature length film, the documentary Mothers Without Children, following three nurses in downtown Toronto trying to help homeless pregnant women.

Stockholm International Film Festival is the festival in an international comparison that by far, screens the largest number of films made by women. Stockholm Film Lab, where female filmmakers highlighted at an early stage of their film career, is another step in their quest to be at the forefront of the representation of female filmmaking.
