The works of the Swedish film poet Arne Sucksdorff captivate us by their precise observation, the subtle combination of documentary and fiction, their experimental photography and the rhythm of the images. His Academy Award winning symphony about Stockholm tells of a hot summer’s day – symbolical, from unusual camera angles and with playful echoes of film noir.
