Lukas Moodysson Interview (We Are the Best!)

We Are the Best!

Lukas Moodysson is a Swedish director whose films are festival staples, gathering international attention and awards for titles like Show Me Love (1998), Together (2000) and Lilja 4-ever (2002).

Lukas’ latest film, We Are the Best!, is based on a graphic novel by Coco Moodysson and follows three outcast teen girls who form a punk band in early 1980s Stockholm. We had the opportunity to discuss the film in-depth with Lukas at our studio space in OCAD U’s Graduate Gallery, including its soundtrack, Swedish films about children, and the film’s aesthetic.
