The DollyCamp (V): Dollykollot, the long journey to Dollywood

In 2004, Nina Persson (from the Cardigans) gave Dolly Parton's biography to her friend Gudrun Hauksdottir to read and both grew even bigger Dolly fans then before.

They contacted the director Jessica Nettelbladt and together decided to record a film about five female singers from Malmö: Cecilia Nordlund, Lotta Wenglén, Helena Josefsson, Gudrun Hauksdottir and Nina Persson. SheMusic and Le Joni produced it.

The movie, Dollykollot: "Den långa resan till Dollywood", with the five singers playing themselves, tells their musical love, friendship and music projects connected to Dolly for a time span of 4 years.

The documentary is trying to show what their idol, Dolly, or idols in general could mean to the singers, how it influences these 5 musicians and if you can succeed in "finding" your idol.


Some of the scenes are taken from the Stockholm Pride 2005 (Stockholm,6.08.2005).
