“This is Sweden” – a new film showcasing different sides of Sweden – was launched by the Swedish Institute today! You can watch it here:
The video is also available for download at Vimeo and Sharing Sweden (with subtitles for 14, soon 17, languages).
The teaser for the film was released last week and has already been viewed 0,5 million times on social media. It was also screened yesterday at the Nasdaq Video Tower in Times Square, New York city.
The award-winning production company B-Reel Films produced the movie, Olof Lindh directed. At the age of 25 he already has a number of awards and achievements under his belt, including work for Spotify: “We’ve chosen a documentary method, shooting with real people in real situations rather than professional actors, to capture a true and multifaceted glimpse of life in Sweden.”
Alice Boman’s melancholic song Waiting helps convey the feeling further and the artist supports the video’s open message: “I’m proud to represent Sweden, the parts of Sweden this film highlight.”
