Malik, Emil & Oscar

The great Malik Bendjelloul was recently back in Stockholm for a couple of days. Of course I had to see him and his new shiny (and heavy!) friend. The stories Malik tells about his previous months are absolutely surreal; partying with Gaspar Noé in the Parisien nightlife, being invited to David Lynch’s house for afternoon tea, getting Hollywood proposals as an everyday routine. This collage of success that Searching for Sugarman and its OSCAR! for Best Documentary is just amazing and inside of this whirlwind Malik is standing straight and proud, ready for new project and adventures. The least thing Malik wants to do is to take some time off, he is a man that needs a creative project in order to feel calm.
