Run Uje Run (2020)

Run Uje Run is an autobiographical pop music drama comedy by Uje Brandelius. About how life takes turns you couldn’t fantasize about when you get a disease diagnosis. About what you have to catch up with before you die. And what you don’t have to do. And about the very ordinary, dreary, gray but also lovely everyday.

Uje Brandelius’ autobiographical story is interwoven with pop music about life and everyday life. Uje and his family play themselves in a movie that takes place during a couple of summer weeks in the Stockholm suburb of Bredäng.

Henrik Schyffert is directing his first feature film with warm comedy about dealing with life’s more unexpected twists and turns.
