The Emigrants' Streets
Over the years 1850 - 1930 emigrated 1,2 millions of Swedes to America. Most of them sealed from Packhuset in Gothenburg. Postgatan, which was called Sillgatan, was the big emigration street with offices, hotels, shady taverns and restaurants. Join the maid Mari (played by Anette Sundqvist) on her walk along the street, with dreams, hopes and fears before the departure. Directed by Isabel Lagos.
