OUR NEED FOR CONSOLATION: Dagerman Project

The film OUR NEED FOR CONSOLATION Directed by Dan Levy Dagerman, Produced by Lo Dagerman and Filip Hammarstrom is based on an essay by Stig Dagerman, Producer Lo Dagerman's father and Director Dan Levy Dagerman's grandfather.

The film contextualizes Stig Dagerman's meteoric rise to literary fame and is an immersive collage of images and sound illustrating both the pain and the sense of freedom of the author's essay and features a reading by on camera narrator Stellan Skarsgard.
