Requiem from a Cemetery

Everyone in this story is dead. Everyone except its storyteller, Bengt Bok. As he walks around a cemetery, the voices of people he’s interviewed in the past emerge from the earth.

Bengt Bok is an award-winning radio journalist, documentary filmmaker and professor at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. You can read an extract from Bok’s meditation on the interview process ‘Encounter with the Other’ here.

This documentary was made for P1 Dockumentär on Sveriges Radio.
