When Svante Disappeared

Henning Carlsen, Denmark, 1975

86 min.DK/Feature

Poet-pianist-composer Benny Andersen wrote First Person Singular songs to tell about another poet, pixilated *** and often slightly pickled *** Svante, a Swede stuck in Denmark for fear of getting sea-sick crossing the narrow strait to Sweden. Andersen and singer Povl Dissing toured with their Svante Songs for years. Books and recordings followed. Henning Carlsen turned the songs into this film.
