Roy Andersson is a filmmaker from Sweden. His most recent feature, You, the Living (stills above), was released in the U.S. earlier this year. His short film World of Glory is available on the Cinema16: European Short Films dvd. I highly recommend you track down the dvd and give it a proper viewing – translation: don’t watch it on youtube.
