The Nordic & Baltic Oscar Contenders series at Scandinavia House returns this season with select in-house and virtual screenings of films chosen by the Nordic & Baltic countries to compete for the Oscar nomination for the Best International Feature Film. On December 11 at Scandinavia House, see the film Tigers/Tigrar (dir. Ronnie Sandahl; Sweden/Italy/Denmark, 2020), Sweden’s official nomination for the 94th Academy Awards. Following the screening, Ronnie Sandahl will present a film Q&A.

A life-or-death rollercoaster ride through the modern-day football industry, Tigers follows Martin, one of the most promising football talents Sweden has ever seen. At 16, his lifelong dream comes true when he is bought by one of Italy’s most prestigious clubs; yet that dream comes at a very high price in terms of sacrifice, dedication, pressure and — most of all — loneliness. Before long, Martin begins to question whether this is actually the life he yearned for. With a unique perspective on the world of professional sports, Ronnie Sandahl’s coming-of-age drama based on Martin Bengtsson’s autobiography In the Shadow of San Siro looks at a young man’s burning obsession in a world where everything, and everyone, has a price tag.

“A compelling look at the dark side of sports glory”—THR
