Värn (Redoubt)

12' documentary // 2014

Sony F-5 / Sweden

Skoog’s film bears witness to the Cold War on the borderline between personal and collective history. A collage of voices and sounds reinforces the atmospheric impact of his imagery while the autobiographical elements of the film are embedded in a larger whole through art historical references to Kurt Schwitters’ ‘Merzbau’ and Facteur Cheval’s ‘Palais Idéal’.
