Citizen Schein

Allowed 100 minutes 2017 7.1

Harry Schein is undoubtedly one of the most important and luminous people of the Swedish film history. He was the careerist who became a millionaire through a water purification system, the sunburned dandy who married a movie star, and the political visionary who argued with the 1968 protest movement, rejected Åsa-Nisse and created the Swedish Film Institute. In Citizen Schein, we get to know both Schein the icon, and Harry the human. “Citizen Schein is an incredible time document, an entertaining crash course in Swedish film politics, and an interesting documentary about a man whose journey through life makes the most unlikely success stories of fiction fade in comparison”, writes Wanda Bendjelloul in Dagens Nyheter.
