The Anchorage is an 87-minute narrative feature film released in 2010 and shot in Sweden’s Stockholm Archipelago. It describes the life of a woman, Ulla (Ulla Edström), over the course of three fictional days. On its face, it’s a film about the landscape that she inhabits, her passage of time on this rugged forest island, and the appearance of an unfamiliar hunter who disturbs her quiet corner of the world.
