GABI BETWEEN AGES 8 AND 13
We get to know Gabi as she plays football or hangs out with her best friend Henry. Already early on, Gabi’s thoughts about the stereotypical and binary gender roles are well-formulated and thought-out. When the family moves to Dalarna, Gabi’s life enters a bewildering period. She has a tough time making new friends and wants to go back to her friends in Stockholm. Director Engeli Broberg follows Gabi over five years, creating a tactful and up-close portrait that lets us take part in and discover Gabi’s world, genuinely and sincerely, and always portrayed from Gabi’s perspective.
