New Nordic Cinema: Catwalk: From Glada Hudik to New York

Emma Örtlund has had a lifelong dream of becoming a fashion model, and asks Pär Johansson, founder of the Happy Hudik Theatre, for help. It’s an unattainable dream for most people — and seemingly even more so for people with disabilities like Emma and the four young theater members who decide to join her on her mission. As they together embark on an exciting and bewildering journey to fulfill the impossible, their unique personalities and stories deliver joy and inspiration to the fashion world and beyond; making a powerful statement about the importance of equal value, disabled or not, while giving them their time to shine. Uplifting, entertaining, emotional and inspiring, Catwalk truly is a film for our times.
