A deeply moving documentary from Grammy-nominated director Fred Scott, Being a Human Person explores the life and work of acclaimed Swedish auteur Roy Andersson (A Pigeon Sat on a Bench Reflecting on Existence, A Swedish Love Story).

Andersson’s latest film – About Endlessness – will be his last, thus marking the end of a major chapter in world cinema. For when Roy stops making films, they simply will never be made in this way again. As with every one of his productions, it has been a long journey.

Set across a three-year time period, Being a Human Person tracks the ups and downs of Andersson’s unique, immersive, and at times arduous method of filmmaking, examining the true legacy of a master storyteller as he calls time on a career and comes to terms with his own, increasingly fragile mortality.
