Superhjälten – Superhero

Tonight’s the night when a new short film “Superhero” begins its journey on the big screens at cinema 3 in Ystad.  “Superhero” is a story about an eight-year girl who suspects that her alcoholic troublesome dad is really a superhero.


A while ago I received a call asking me if I would like to be involved in  a short film production, of course! was my answer and since that day I have been able to keep in touch with him via facebook.

Landskrona filmmaker Csaba Bene Perlenberg´s brand new short film “Superhjälten” (in swedish) “Superhero” is no longer on the list of dream’s to come true, since tonight is the premier of this 15 minute story. 

 – Super hero is a powerful metaphor for other things. They are our counterparts to the ancient Greek god or gods. Superheroes concept is also a good metaphor for parenting. Children often think that their parents are invincible, and the perfect role models, “he says.

All the work on the film, from scriptwriting to the set in Ystad, has taken almost a year. Csaba Bene Perlenberg, which has short films as “Being pump” and “Straw” on his record, saying he never worked on an equally high level. He has had the help of a large film crew, and he has worked on special effects.


– It would never have done without Wallanderland. There is an infrastructure of expertise. It is really cool, “he says.

 The film had time, according to Csaba Bene Perlenberg, not be ready in time for the Gothenburg Film Festival which ended last weekend. Now, he hopes, and co-producer Sofie Palage it to appear on a major international film festival. How big the chance is, he doesn´t know.

 – It’s a lottery. It is not enough that the film is good. But the Swedish Film Institute’s international department pushing extra hard for it in the world right now.
