Leisure Time - A Summer's Day
Adam Paaske • Denmark • 2022 • 29 min
An ethnographic study, simultaneously absurd and funny, about the Danes who spend the ultra-long days of summer at their holiday cottages.
In Denmark, having a summer cottage is kind of a must for middle-class and well-to-do people. Divided in several tableaus depicting several moments of a summer day, the documentary stars people of various ages and backgrounds captured in the middle of various activities having one single purpose: relaxation no matter what.
