The experimental film RITUAL (50 min) is the result of the recent 2 years project. It is now ready and has a great poster to go with it, designed by Milena Karlsson. The film explores energy greed as a social phenomenon and ritual as artistic method and has been filmed in eleven places in Sweden. In the selected localities, there is a historical connection to the extraction of energy and raw materials, which today is again brought to the fore in the transition to green energy and renewable raw materials. The artists have especially chosen to highlight how the urban lifestyle is dependent on nature and people in less populated places and communities in Sweden.
