This Side Story (2018)

This Side Story -Inspired by the classic West Side Story's captivating story of peer pressure, gang rivalry, frustration and forbidden love, we have written a new story - This Side Story. A story about Malmö, or a Malmö that could be.

We see an increasingly divided city, the distance between people is increasing, frustration and racism are growing. This Side Story is a dystopian picture of what Malmö's development could lead to - not a development towards crime and violence, but a development towards a society where we have stopped talking to each other, where the city is quiet and indifferent and where the distance between people and groups become so big that all life on the streets has died out.

The only thing left is prejudice and hostility, but also a dream of something else.
