Anna Odell: Bullying was just the trigger

"Everyone was invited but me."
11 min

This week at the Swedish Film Awards, the Guldbagge for best film went to The Reunion (Återträffen in Swedish), a movie which has sparked a big discussion in the media. It is the brainchild of Anna Odell, who also starred in it, directed it and wrote it.

The film is about a woman who was bullied in school when she was younger, and now 20 years later, all grown up, she goes to her class reunion to try to make her classmates come to terms with what they did to her.

Odell, also known for her work as an artist and provocateur, is Radio Sweden's special Friday guest.
