A graduation film by Sven Blume from the Documentary Film Programme 2013 at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts.

”If you want to find someone in Vidsel, that would be pretty darn tricky. Most of the ladies are spoken for..."The solution is Thai girls, - they want to stay."

In the film The Men From Vidsel you will meet three men, who grew up in Vidsel, a small village in the north of Sweden. Despite their lives being impacted by the affect of depopulation, they decide to remain. Ultimately their search for a life partner leads them to Thailand. In the film we will get to know their thoughts about love, the relationship and the life in Vidsel. We also get to follow the Thai women and their thoughts of their new life far from their home country. A situation dependent on theirs husband’s money and driving license.
