Fractions of Collateral Damage

The intimacy we once had to nature is undoubtedly endangered. This includes our knowledge about nature, and how we can harvest from it. This knowledge that has been accumulated through the whole of human development through involvement with nature is now close to eradication. How can we find our way back to this life of necessary intimacy?

Karin and Sixten - Smögen, Life and the Sea.

The film is a story about the sea and fishing, and about people on the island of Smögen in Bohuslän. On Smögen, the bedrock has been ground and shaped round by the constant movement of the water. In the same way, the people on the island have been shaped to survive in one of the most unlikely places to live in Sweden. Stefan is the project manager for the film about Sixten and Karin, which was produced together with seven other filmmakers. They are LaVonne Quinth, Claes Andrén, Sarita Eliasson, Mathilda Segedahl, Svante Lysén as well as Bernhard Pausett and Elisabeth Rosvold.
