The figure of murdered prime minister Olof Palme cast its shadow over Swedish film and television in 2012. Not least because of the documentary film "Palme", which was one of the most popular films in cinemas this year, which is remarkable for a documentary.
The film has been nominated for several Swedish Film Awards, Guldbaggen, or Gold Bug. It features music by Benny Andersson from ABBA, and contains never before seen super 8 home movies donated by the Palme family. Directors Maud Nycander and Kristina Lindström wanted to show a new side to the much loved politician.
Our reporter Sophie Vukovic caught director Kristina Lindström right after it had been announced that "Palme" was nominated for a Guldbagge, in the categories of Best Documentary, Best Editing, and Best Music.
