BEING A HUMAN PERSON
90 mins | Studio 24 | Directed by Fred Scott | Produced by Mike Brett, Steve Jamison, Jo-Jo Ellison | Music by Roger Goula
This film’s concern stretches far beyond simply evaluating Roy Andersson's contribution to cinema or charting a ‘behind the scenes’ of his final film. Being a Human Person explores the philosophical and emotional stresses of a creator accepting that this will be his last work of art. As Roy wrestles with what it means to call time on his career, so too he wrestles with the meaning of his own life and the fragility of human existence.
