• Theatrical trailerStockholm My Love
A film by Mark Cousins starring Neneh Cherry
Dual Format Edition (DVD/Blu-ray) release on 26 June 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.
After its forthcoming BFI theatrical release in selected cinemas UK-wide on 16 June, Stockholm My Love will be released in a Dual Format Edition by the BFI on 26 June 2017.
Mark Cousins and award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle (best known for his work with Wong Kar-wai on In the Mood for Love) 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.
