The Films of Roy Andersson: Commercials & Short Films

After Andersson’s second film, Giliap, flopped, he seemingly retired from filmmaking. But very quickly became one of Sweden’s top commercial directors, famous for mordantly funny spots for deodorant, ketchup, cookware and cars — all while still retaining his socialist sensibilities. We’ve cooked up a night of Andersson’s greatest achievements in the land of commercials and we will also be screening his two short films, World of Glory and Something Happened.
