Trogen till döden (True till death) is a new DIY documentary examining the Straight Edge movement in Sweden. The film starts with a retrospective of the vibrant drug free scene that grew up in Umeå during the 90’s through the story of José Saxlund, member of the prominent band Abhinanda, and then continues with the current state of Straight Edge hardcore punk scene all around Sweden. The intelligent documentary features interviews with members of hardcore punk bands, gig collectives and individuals from Umeå, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö, who are keeping the spirit of sober and aware youth culture true till death.
