Les États généraux du film documentaire 2017 Fragment of a filmmaker’s work: Peter Nestler Sightseeing

Peter Nestler
1968 - Suède - Couleur - 10'

A short pamphlet based on a text by Peter Weiss and on the contrapuntal use of the relation between image and sound. The commercial activities and fantasies linked to tourism in Sweden are contradicted by the geopolitics of capitalist imperialism, in particular with the war in Vietnam. In his first film shot in Sweden, Nestler reverses the picturesque image of the country communicated in its media and by Swedish cinema.
