Barnfilmbyn Mariannelund

The heart of Barnfilmbyn and the world’s No.1 children’s film museum is spelled Filmernas Hus. Based around the Emil movies, a unique exhibition has been assembled, which with some technological assistance takes the visitor on an entertaining and informative journey behind the scenes. At the same time, it paints an historical picture of filmmaking during the 1970s.

After spending Christmas with the family in
2001, Astrid gets sick with influenza and never
fully recovers. On 28th January 2002 she passes
away quietly in her home. The funeral is held on
8th March – International Women’s Day. The
streets of Stockholm are crowded with
thousands of people following the cortege from
Adolf Fredrik’s Church (where the immediate
family take their farewells) to the Great Church
in the Old Town where the official part of the
funeral is held. The funeral service is attended
by the Royal Family and an obituary is read by
the Prime Minister.

Resting in Peace

Astrid may not have climbed any trees during the
last years of her life, but she was certainly a keen
tree-climber well into her ripe old age. And the
playfulness stayed with her throughout her life.

The three sisters from Näs kept almost daily
contact right up to the end.
