Film Still: Strawberry Days

Strawberry Days

  •   Wiktor Ericsson
  •   Sweden

In this tender coming of-of-age romance, Polish teenager Wojtek has joined his down-on-their-luck migrant worker parents to pick strawberries in Sweden for the summer. Smitten with the landowners’ daughter, he quickly wins Anneli over with his persistent charm. Just as love begins to blossom, the young couple is faced with not only their social and cultural differences but also but also each community’s own prejudices. Swedish and Polish with subtitles.


Co-presented by the Swedish American Museum and the Consulate General of Sweden in Chicago
