Sounds of Exile
Berättelser från Malmö
Malmö was once the typical Swedish town. It was a quiet worker’s town with a white population. With a few exotic exceptions everyone spoke Swedish, listened to the same music and went about their similar lives. Today Malmö is one of the most debated towns in Scandinavia. It’s multicultural population consists of over 170 nationalities. Almost half of the cities population have an immigrant background. Through the festive and emotional music of three artists from Malmö and through their stories “Sounds of Exile” gives a different picture of the city and of immigration in the west today. A music documentary with performances by some of Malmö’s best artists in World Music. All the artists are immigrants. A film that aims to give a positive view of Malmö's diversity.
