Dirs. Roy Andersson, Kalle Boman, Lena Ewert, Staffam Hedqvist, Axel R.-Lohmann, Lennart Malmer, Jörgen Persson, Ingela Romare, Inger Roos, Rudi Spee, Bo Widerberg. 1968, 102 mins. DCP. Andersson was part of a 13-director collective that made this remarkable cinema vérité documentary that captures an important moment in the social turmoil and protests that swept Europe in the spring of 1968. When Rhodesia, which was led by a pro-apartheid regime, was invited to Sweden for a Davis Cup–qualifying tennis competition, protesters converged on the quiet tourist town of Båstad to stop the match. At once a spontaneous and candid record of a pivotal moment, this bracing and provocative film offers a panoramic view of politics, class, and race, revealing the perspectives of all parties.
