Director Kim Ekberg has long wanted to make a film about his brother Hampus and his girlfriend.

Nadir, takes place in Malmö, in an area of sometimes conflicting cultural and political interests, which was once considered a “no-go zone” by the municipality – due to its high crime rate. At the same time, the street can perhaps be described as an expressive and symphonic micro-city. Surrounded by several small-scale industries, there is a lingering scent from the nearby Pågen bread-factory. Here, a Baptist church gathers upstairs of an old production facility side by side with flowing neon from Arab furniture and carpet stores. Through a multisensory journey, the street scene acts as both scenography and material.

We cross each other’s paths & affect each other’s fate at the ladies toilet. We drink and pee together, hold each other’s hair when we puke and make out. A sanctuary where we can be at peace and together. Welcome to take a peek!
