Born in 1980 Something is a short documentary series about young creatives born between late some 70 and early 90. In the series, we follow a creative generation that went against the community and their parents to follow their dreams. The series depicts a Sweden in transition. It depicts the new generation of workers as preferring to become musicians than to stand plodding at the steelworks.
We go behind the scenes with mostly unknown artists, musicians, filmmakers, etc, who all have parents who grew up in another time, when the people rather worked in the steel industry than become artists. It is in many ways a forgotten creative generation which had to go against society and their own parents who grew up in a completely different time.
