Nabbed all the top honours at Sweden's prestigious Guldbagge Awards this year.Peppered with spontaneous musical moments, Kidz in da Hood is an uplifting drama that centres around nine year-old, African refugee Amina. Having lived on the sly in Sweden without a resident permit for three years, Amina faces a shaky future when her only relative, her grandfather, dies suddenly. She has her sights set on a tattooed rock guitarist as her new guardian - but will social services accept this unlikely pairing? Moving from rap to pop and from rock to tango, this film literally bursts with songs and oozes a feel-good ethos that will have both adults and children tapping their toes. “A vibrant, often funky movie.” - VarietyMIFF recommends: Age 12+. Mild sexual references and mild coarse language.
