En bra vecka för demokratin
Cecilia Björk

A point of pride of Swedish democracy since 1968, the political festival Almedalen keeps getting bigger every summer. Shot here over the course of three years, A Good Week for Democracy follows politicians, lobbyists and journalists at different stages in their careers, with different degrees of power, as they navigate the game rules of democracy. The film is a study of how politics is performed in a society where media attention is hard currency.
