Film notes

HAVET is a film about two people as victims of social norms in society. How far would we go to follow the rules and match to expectations that are directly harming us?

HAVET is a Production by the ”Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen Konrad Wolf”.
The Film was being shot in June 2008 by students of the film school together with a Swedish team in Brantevik, a small village on the Swedish South East Coast.
Director Jöns Jönsson has spent a big part of his youth in this village. Tight relations to the place and the people gave him the idea for this film. The characters are real and the story is true. Jöns Jönsson tells about a certain evening, that he observes from a close and yet outside perspective.
