Far from Stockholm
Långt fårn Stockholm (Far from Stockholm) finds JH Engstrom on a journey into the surrounding world away from the big city.
Shifting between isolated small communities and the untamed wilderness of the Swedish landscape -Engstrom weaves the two worlds with portraits of 'dance bands', youths etc and juxtaposing them amongst icy rivers, forests and disappearing roads.
By weaving these themes, Engstrom tells at once a poetic solitary and contemplative story whilst returning to the heart and structure of the small community.
