Ex-punk musician David Sandström travels back to the roots of his own family. He also searches for a new home on the countryside. An old house for a new life and for new music. During his search he crosses the paths of generations that traveled opposite ways. The lyrics of Sara Lidman and the photographs of Sune Jonsson accompany David on his journey. A film about searching roots and identity with music by David Sandström. Written by
I really like this documentary. It's very well done and contains great animation and music by David Sandström who was a member of the Swedish punk-band Refused. It's not a conventional documentary film. Much more elaborate and artistic. The animations are very special and surprisingly well done. I also liked the story very much, which tells the story of David's grandfather who committed suicide.
The film contains also many stills by the Swedish photographer Sune Jonsson. Very strong pictures about Swedish peasants. Very poetic and touchy!
One of my absolute favorite documentary films!
