Living life at 106
The 2015 documentary "Life begin at 100", about the 103-year-old blogger Dagny Carlsson, was seen and embraced by a record audience at SVT. It won several international awards and was shown at Al Jazeera with a reach of 80 million viewers. Dagny's blog has now over 3 million visitors.
Now comes the sequel Living life at 106. Dagny, now 106 years old, wants to take care of the days she has left, run away from death and not to be forgotten. And maybe fulfill her hundred-year dream to walk on the Chinese wall. Her lust for adventure takes her to the most unexpected meetings, to the visionary dreamer and film director Finn Power in Åland who gives Dagny the lead role in his film. It also takes her to the equally old and cheerful lady in the neighborhood and further to the fantasy world China.
The documentary is comedy at it´s best. At the same time, loneliness and death are always present. What is important? Maybe keeping dreams alive and a friendships across all borders.
Director Åsa Blanck has previously won a Guldbagge for Vikarien, Prix Europa for The Persson family in foreign land and Camera Image for Grandpa & I and the helicopter to heaven.
