A deeply moving documentary from Grammy-nominated director Fred Scott, 'Being a Human Person' explores the life and work of acclaimed Swedish auteur Roy Andersson ('A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Contemplating Existence', 'A Swedish Love Story'). Andersson’s latest film – 'About Endlessness' – will be his last, and will thus mark the end of a major chapter in cinema. For when Roy stops making films, they will simply never be made in this way again. As with every one of his productions, it’s been a long road. Set across a three year time period, 'Being a Human Person' tracks the ups and downs of Roy’s unique, immersive – and at times arduous – method of filmmaking, and examines the true legacy of a master storyteller as he calls time on a career and comes to terms with his own, increasingly fragile mortality. ★★★★ - "A valuable introduction to the movies and to the man." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ - "A generous, honest, insightful and at times rather sad glimpse of the man at work" - Phil de Semlyen, Time Out ★★★★ "Consolidates Andersson’s genius without ever screaming it in your face." - David Jenkins, Little White Lies
