We follow the Swedish artist Silvana Imam in an intimate portrait showing her journey from relatively unknown performer to icon and role model for Swedish fans and LGBTQ young people. The film is about daring to stand up for who you are, but above all it’s a film about love. It raises questions about gender roles and love in same-sex relationships and about being a celebrity at the same time as you’re just another human being. The screening is followed by a conversation with directors Mika Gustafson, Olivia Kastebring and Christina Tsiobanelis who won the prestigious Guldbaggen for Best Documentary in 2017
