Summer is at its peak in Scania in southern Sweden. The seasonal workers have arrived, the locals are celebrating the harvest and the young people are drinking in the woods. The Swedish summer itself is the protagonist in this beautifully atmospheric film, which also gives fleeting insight into the lives of seasonal worker Beata, youngster Aaron, and Billie, who is on her first summer vacation. John Skoog masters the balance between visual art, abstract fiction and documentary, and the summer mood permeates every frame, floating through lives and forests.
John Skoog (Sweden) RIDGE is Skoog’s first feature length documentary.
