Mikael Kristersson from Falsterbo relates youthful memories and shows his first TV-film “Måkläppen” from 1972.
Mikael was born and raised in Falsterbo and completed the University College of Film, Radio, Television and Theatre’s film and photography course in Stockholm 1973-1975. He has been active as a documentary filmmaker ever since and has made approximately 35 films, mainly for TV but also 3 full length films released in cinemas: Pica pica, The Eye of the Falcon and Light Years - all critically acclaimed and shown at festivals around the world. Mikael has been active within nature and environmental organisations and initiated the creation of Falsterbonäset’s Nature Conservation Society in 1970. This presentation is a rare chance to see Mikael’s first film and to see how sea, wind and currents have changed the landscape – in other words, a unique opportunity.
