Bad Lesbian

Simone Norberg | Sweden| 2020 | 14 minutes

Nittonåriga Alexandra tacklas med omgivningens förväntningar på hennes lesbiska identitet när hon plötsligt får intresse för en kille. En tonårshistoria om att dras mellan andras åsikter och att fatta svåra beslut. Runtliggande familjeomständigheter ligger som en dimma över den tidigare så enkla och somriga livsstilen.

Director : Simone Norberg.

Photography : Malin Lundquist.

Producer : Oceanne Texier


Simone Norberg is a fiction filmmaker from Gothenburg born in 1996. After 2 years of art studies in southern Sweden where she mostly focused on production design, she went back to Gothenburg to study film directing at The Academy of Art and Design (HDK-Valand). Common topics in Simone Norberg’s film making are young people and their expectations of close relations and friendship. Her main characters are often frustrated, sometimes mourning, women who are looking for something unavailable. By working within the traditional frameworks of drama, but avoiding the superficial, she wants to create a space where the personal gets universal, and where the audience can identify with this universality. Simone Norberg’s previous short GIRLS NIGHT OUT premiered at the 42nd Göteborg Film Festival in 2020.
