Wasteland-poster-VFF7497

Synopsis

Documentary | Sweden

Värmland is an inland Swedish province. An influential Stockholm professor of economics describes it as a place with no shopping, no entertainment, and no universities, offering nothing of value — a wasteland. What is the future for the young people who live there? A snapshot of life distant from the city.

This contemporary document depicts life in the country by offering a glimpse into the world of a few young adults and their life choices. A film that can also be viewed as a political, non-ideological contribution to the debate about the urban-rural divide.
