Docs: Being a Human Person (2020)

An engaging, candid documentary look at award-winning Swedish auteur Roy Andersson as told chiefly through the lens of his work on his self-proclaimed last film, Being a Human Person is a movie that gives ample consideration to its subject’s primary professional thematic preoccupations: vulnerability, insecurity, and the weight of mortality. It also serves to celebrate more broadly humanity’s inherent need for art, and its use as a salve for what burdens us.
