Save our Swedish railway stations!

In 2003 The Swedish government gave The Swedish Transport Board authority to decide which railway buildings were no longer needed. As a result, thousands of old buildings have now been demolished. Luckily however, a few others have escaped the bulldozers, thanks to private enthusiasts in local communities.

Who are we without our architectural heritage? What will we become without local historical knowledge?

"Four Dreams and a Thousand Demolitions" is a poetic documentary, featuring the enthusiasts who have been lucky enough to buy and save old station buildings.

This film is conceived, directed and produced by Peggy Eklöf, 29 media and Elzbieta Jasinska Brunnberg, Art Film Factory. The poetry in the film, read by internationally renowned film actress Lena Endre, is written by Swedish author Åsa Maria Kraft.

"Four Dreams and a Thousand Demolitions" will premiere at the Lund International Architecture Film Festival on the 9 September 2014.

This film is supported by Längmanska Stiftelsen, Helge Ax:son Johnson Foundation and Film i Skåne.
