Miami Film Festival is partnering with Miami Book Fair at the Fair’s upcoming 35th Anniversary Edition with a screening of the film BECOMING ASTRID.
In the film, young Astrid Lindgren, future author of the beloved Pippi Longstocking series, is eager to break free from the confines of her religious upbringing, so she accepts an internship at a local newspaper and attracts the attention of its editor. Astrid becomes pregnant, and later secretly gives birth to a son whom she leaves in the care of a foster mother. When the foster mother falls ill, Astrid uses her imagination and flair for storytelling to reconnect with her son. In spite of her struggles, Astrid emerges with a newfound courage that will later form the foundation of a vast and beloved body of work.
