“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”… In 2020, Sweden was the only country in Europe whose Public Health Agency was independent from their government body. As a result, they coasted through 2020 and 2021 without imposing medieval-style lockdowns, mask mandates, or school closures. Trapped in lockdown between the two extremes of Coronavirus deniers and lockdown orthodoxy, filmmaker Claudia Adeia Nye was intrigued by Sweden’s approach and spoke intimately with Chief Epidemiologist Anders Tegnell and others in the Scandinavian country who demonstrated a steely resolve not to buckle under world mainstream media pressure means – among other things, tango dancing is allowed in Stockholm. Directed by Nye, a BAFTA nominated filmmaker, this documentary offers a truly unique angle to the relentless ‘global pandemic’ narrative.
