About the artist

Åke Karlung

1930-1990. Film-maker and artist. He studied oriental art and philosophy for many years. Karlung is a unique one-man, anti-movement phenomenon in Swedish film. He often avails himself of material generally regarded as the left-over scraps of modern society and manages to produce his films on an almost non-existing budget.
