‘Re-mapping cinema for the twenty-first century’ looks at the four Swedish-language feature-length fiction films of Director Lukas Moodysson. The article argues for three major points: the assessment of Moodysson's work across thematic readings; the use of Moodysson's production methods and textual messages to challenge questions of national and even regional culture (in this case Swedish, European/western) in an age of transnational digital media; and to analyse these films as an illustration of the role of post-Soviet economic and technological developments in reshaping our understandings of identity, in particular those corresponding to gender and sexuality.

Keywords: Lukas Moodysson; digital media; gender and sexuality; globalization; technology; transnational cinema
