Filmform (est. 1950) is dedicated to preservation, promotion and worldwide distribution of experimental film and video art. Constantly expanding, the distribution catalogue spans from 1924 to the present, including works by Sweden’s most prominent artists and filmmakers, available to rent for public screenings and exhibitions as well as for educational purposes.
The film follows Lukasz, a young man who claims to be possessed by demons. Through his openness and unique perspective, we get an insight into what it’s like to be at the fringe of society and what the consequences of this can be. The film is shot in a fly-on-the-wall fashion inspired by the Direct Cinema movement.
