About the film:
Nice people live in the Swedish town of Borlänge, if you believe the town’s motto. But not all the locals appreciate the presence of a large group of Somali immigrants who fled the war. Integration is tough and something needs to be done. Local entrepreneur Patrik Andersson gets an idea – why not use sport as a bridge to get people closer to each other? The goal: to create the first-ever Somali national team in bandy and make it to the World Championship in Siberia. “Nice People” is a story about reaching out, breaking barriers and forming new bonds (Directors: Anders Helgeson and Karin af Klintberg; Swedish with English subtitles, 92 minutes).
