Screening of Anders Helgeson’s and Karin af Klintberg’s “Nice People”
May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A group of young men who fled the war in Somalia have ended up in a rural town in Sweden where integration is tough. Something needs to be done. Local entrepreneur Patrik Andersson gets an idea, why not use sport as a bridge to get people closer to each other? The goal: to create the first ever Somali national team in bandy and make it to the World Championship in Siberia. This is a story about racism and fear, but it’s also about bravery and doing something that hasn’t been done before.
In partnership with the Embassy of Sweden in the United States.
