Film Festival Jimmy Olsson’s award winning film ‘2nd Class’ selected for Flickers Rhode Island

Director Jimmy Olsson’s topical film 2nd Class tackles the sadly relevant issue of racism. Having recently begun its festival run the film has already taken home three awards. Now, this topical film has been selected to play at the Oscar-qualifying Flickers Rhode Island Film Festival.

Charlotte has got a new job as a second grade teacher. One night she is attacked by a nazi and is severely injured. When she comes back to her students she discovers that one of her students is the son of a nazi.

Swedish writer and director Jimmy Olson studied at film school in Stockholm and went on to create nine films. His filmography includes 2nd Class, the comedy Palmegruppen tar långlunch, Void, Ceasar, the comedy Bättre Ränta, Förträngd, Linjer and Leva, leva, leva. Olsson prefers stories that focus on the human being, inner self and relations. When he is not doing short films or writing scripts he directs commercials.

2nd Class stars newcomer Hannah Alem Davidsoon and introduces Mio Melberg. Olsson makes a cameo as the Nazi and the beautiful cinematography was created by Bo Pärletun.

This wonderful film won Best Screenplay at the Short to the Point Film Festival, Best Actor at the Diversions international film festival and Best international short film at Hidalgo Film Fest.  2nd Class plays at Rhode Island in August.
