Bigert & Bergström
Directors: Lars Bergström, Mats Bigert

 

SYNOPSIS

 

The world isn’t always in motion. There are times when the chaos disappears, times that usually last only minutes. Pedestrians stand still, road traffic stops at the side of the road, and everyone turns their attention to a single thought: remembrance of the dead. Out of respect for the lives of others, the living pause their own lives for a moment.
