  • Description

    Over the years Roy Andersson has cultivated his incredibly idiosyncratic view of the world through his surreal, philosophical, humorous and, ultimately humanist cinema. His dedication to his work has made him one of the most revered auteurs of our time.  A highly collectable limited edition, this collection not only boasts all of  Roy Andersson’s critically-acclaimed works, but it also includes the exclusive home entertainment release of the BIFA-nominated documentary Being a Human Person. Following the making of what Andersson has proclaimed is his final film, About Endlessness, Being a Human Person is a deeply moving look at the life and work of this brilliant artist.

    The 6-disc Blu-ray boxset includes:

    • A Swedish Love Story (1970)
    • Songs from the Second Floor (2000)
    • You, the Living (2007)
    • A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2014)
    • About Endlessness (2020)
    • Being a Human Person (2020)
