Lindstrøm 'On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever' by Kasper Häggström

Promonews - 11th Nov 2019

Two young men walk through the deserted early morning streets of Oslo into the surrounding countryside, carrying a human-sized object wrapped in an orange blanket, in this quietly quirky comedy from Kasper Häggström.

A video featuring tracks from Norwegian producer Lindstrøm’s album On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever, we follow their journey to the coast with their suspicious cargo, before we get an explanation in titles about what is happening - and then what is about to happen.

Spoilers generally do not come in the films themselves, but here it serves to prepare the viewer for the darkly comic denouement, involving a naked archer who has an imaginative way to access his arrows. 

This deadpan telling of an apparently 'true story' adds to the sense, after his UKMVA-winning video for Kelly Lee Owens and his recent video for Flyte, that Kasper Häggström is following in a great tradition of Scandinavinian comedy directors, finding ever-subtler ways to tickle our funny bones.
