Description

Laleh Pourkarim is Sweden’s biggest female musical artist, and one of the few who is a songwriter, producer and performer. As opponents of the regime, her parents Houshang and Atefe were living underground in Iran when Laleh was born. Soon, the family went into exile and on an odyssey through the Soviet Union and Germany, winding up in Sweden. Laleh grew up in a Gothenburg suburb and the rest is history. In this affecting musical portrait, she talks candidly about life and death, about her music and career. About being female in a male-dominated profession. About coming to Sweden as a refugee child. About her parents' lives and deaths. And about the gift she received from them and the responsibility to manage it. Her life and her freedom.
