Sweden 2017

Synopsis

EPIC BEACH FIGHT!! This is what happens when you yell "Sieg Heil" and call someone's wife a whore. He had it coming.

Directors Statement

This film is based on one of the most vivid memories of my early childhood - when some teenagers started yelling ”Sieg Heil” on a beach I visited with my family, and my mom asked my dad to go tell them off. My dad wasn’t up for this at all. And I was very glad he wasn’t.

Reconstructing this event, I was interested in the moral dilemma that my parents were confronted with that day on the beach. And also what it could have looked like had some adults actually confronted those loud young men. The result is a film about a clash of generations, where lack of communication (and too much beer and sun) ultimately leads to a fight on a Swedish beach.
