Pop Culture Confidential

I veckans podd: svenska Oscarshoppet Levan Akin

This week on Pop Culture Confidential writer/director Levan Akin on his new film And Then We Danced. This little gem of a movie earned rave reviews at Cannes, is Swedens Oscar submission and will surely be much talked about this festival and awards season.

And Then We Danced is set in the homophobic and very gender-conservative traditional dance world in Tbilisi, Georgia. Levan Gelbakhiani plays Merab, a dancer who falls for Irakli, his biggest rival in the dance company. Director Levan Akin talks to us about the real dangers they faced making this movie, the films universal themes, how he is inspired by 80’s director John Hughes and Some Kind Of Wonderful and the many messages Akin has received from the LGBTQ+ community -many from countries where it is dangerous just be yourself. Plus much more!

The movie has premiered in Sweden, will be out in the US this winter and is traveling around the world at festivals (London, Zurich, Chicago) and for Awards season.
