Mark Cousins' Stockholm My Love on Dual Format in June

31 May 2017

The latest film by celebrated auteur Mark Cousins (I Am Belfast, The Story of Film), Stockholm My Love follows the footsteps of Alva Achebe (Neneh Cherry), a Swedish architect fascinated by the way buildings influence lives but haunted by a tragic event from her past.

Mark Cousins and award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle (best known for his work with Wong Kar-wai on In the Mood for Love and the stylish visuals of Hero) filmed on the streets of the Swedish capital to create a visually stunning work about loss and rejuvenation, which marks the acting debut of acclaimed musician and singer Neneh Cherry.

The atmospheric soundtrack which follows Alva’s path from grief to recovery, features five pieces of original music written specially for the film by Neneh Cherry with her husband, singer-songwriter-producer Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead), RocketNumberNine’s Benjamin Page and Mark Cousins.
