Charlotte Eliasson – A Dying Showgirl & Her Son in Space
Charlotte Eliasson is a filmmaker and visual artist. Her
documentary film debut, Lönsboda Fox, about the singer Sam Fox’s visit to Lönsboda in 2002 attracted attention in media and is today considered a Scanian cult classic.

The purpose of this film is to tell a visually compelling story about two entangled, complex human beings
