Watch The Brilliant, Coen-esque Trailer For Patrik Eklund's FLIMMER (FLICKER) Now!
A quick search of the Twitch archive will show that we have held director Patrik Eklund in very high regard in these parts for a very, very long time. And the reason for this is, quite simply, that the young Swede is a genius. His short film work is simply fabulous, laced with dark humor and absurdity and yet still populated with touching characters and genuine emotion. Eklund has a rare gift, one that will soon be exposed to a much larger audience with his debut feature, Flimmer (Flicker).
The first trailer for this one has arrived and it is flat out brilliant. If you see anything better than this today - hell, even something half as good - then you are clearly living a more interesting life than I am. Check it out below.Something's bubbling under the surface in the tiny village of Gumby, centring on the struggling telecoms company Unicom, its staff and a militant group of people allergic to electricity. When a power cut strikes the village it triggers off a chain reaction of mishaps, encounters and love affairs.
