Q&A: Magnus Gertten

Swedish director Magnus Gertten (Every Face Has a Name) comes back to fARAD with a film made together with his brother Fredrick Gertten. Incurable soccer fans, both brothers decided to make a film about the most successful product of their hometown club in Malmö: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a young, difficult to tame talent who propelled himself towards more important teams like Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus. A bildungsroman about an international soccer superstar, retold from the empathetic perspective of a nervous young player whose masculinity is under constant pressure.
