While completing what he has declared to be his final film, About Endlessness, acclaimed Swedish auteur Roy Andersson reflects on life in Fred Scott’s moving 2020 documentary. With the end of his career in sight, the central thematic concerns of the 76-year-old director’s work — vulnerability, insecurity, and mortality — spill over into his creative process, blurring the line between the personal and the professional. In capturing this process, Being a Human Person becomes a powerful meditation on the relationship between art and artist, and a heartbreakingly honest portrait of one of modern cinema’s most startlingly original and unremittingly humane directors.
