We Meet At Ängsbacka
is a documentary in progress. The international premiere will be in late 2019.
The movie is about a group of people that has tried to live within the norm of society, but failed to be like the society wants you to be.
Instead, many have been burned out and affected by mental illness in the society. Therefore, they have searched for communities like eco villages and Ängsbacka in Molkom, to get a new start in their lives and hopefully manage to live a life without compromising any more with the norms of society.
The film is also about director Renzo Aneröd's own journey from being burnt out with memories of his brother's suicide and his father's mental illness. The film is taking the story from the very beginning when Renzo tries to restart, get rid of his childhood traumas and find a new creativity and a new way of life without falling into depression and deep anxiety.
The journey for Renzo and the others in the film doesn't turn out to be very easy. Despite joy and love during the transformation, the old reality remains. Sometimes it feels like you end up in limbo, where the self dissolves.
The film depicts humans common dramatic journey between emotions, hope, despair, happiness and anxiety. Will they find what they are looking for, or will they never live in the society again? The film is also having scenes from how it's to live at Ängsbacka and those who started Ängsbacka community and festivals with their visions.
We Meet At Ängsbacka is Renzo Aneröd's most challenging film, where everything is at stake with boundaries between film and reality which dissolves.
During the production, pictures, movie clips and more will be posted.
