MAJ DORIS

by Jon Blåhed

synopsis

Some people have a special ability to live their life to the fullest and to be present in everything they do. One of them is the 74-year-old artist Maj Doris, who has travelled around the world and today lives on her own in a small house in the beautiful northern Swedish wilderness, where the northern lights undulate across the mountains. Alone, and yet. As a sought-after artist with exhibitions and a genuine interest in the young, it is natural for her to be surrounded by people. A young, Afghan man helps her out on the farm. To show her gratitude, she entertains him and his friends at the local burger bar about the time when she discovered rock n' roll! The passing of time and of life in general in the frosty expanses follows its own rhythm in Jon Blåheld's sensual and beautiful film. One almost feels a form of gratitude for being able to join her in her living room, when she with deep concentration lies in her bed and smokes a cigarette, while listening to a young woman singing on a record. A fantastic person in a gorgeous, close-up portrait.
