    Documentary

    In the style of the pioneers of Direct Cinema, like Americans D.A. Pennebaker and Frederick Wiseman, a picture with no cuts or retakes of 30 hours in the life of Anders Björck, a conservative politician well known in Sweden since the ’80s, presently the governor of Uppsala County, in the north of Stockholm. With no interviews or private life footage, the documentary makes a discrete celebration of a man dedicated to politics and with at least one foot set in the past.
