StrandhuggStrandfreuden / Beach Fun

Retrospective, Sweden 1950, 15 Min., no dialogue

The daughter of a fisherman falls for a pleasure boat sailor. When his girlfriend shows up in the holiday town on Sweden’s west coast, disappointment drives the young island lass to become a “buccaneer” … A poetic, sun-drenched holiday film that contrasts the traditional picturesque occupation of fishing with the new demands of booming tourism.
