2019 Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival – Aniara Movie Review
Trapped on a ship hurtling through the cosmos with no immediate destination, the society on board breaks down. There are suicides, anarchy, incarcerations and the formation of cults. The banner of civility is ripped off and the veneer of society is gone.
This cautionary tale is based on the poem Aniara by Swedish Nobel laureate Harry Martinson. It paints a harsh picture on a future where the corporation that runs the space craft now runs the society and their ...

Moro Spanish Film Festival – The Good Girls Movie review
Sofía deals with this financial crises the only way she can, by completely ignoring it.
