A woman in front of a window, a female choir, a gymnast, two girls on a bench on a cold street, two crematorium workers exchanging banalities. A film made up of routine spaces which are sewn together to make a map of an unusual, familiar yet baffling city. Portrait of a place blessed by the perplexity of what we call daily life.
Born in Sweden (1984), he became a documentary director at The National Film School of Denmark (2009-2013). In 2014 Carl Olsson was nominated for a Danish Academy Award (Robert Award) for his graduation film Blessed be this place. His works include documentary film, visual art in relation to theater and dance performances, music videos, trailers and dance films. He has received further education and lived extensively in Latin America.
