The making of puppets for Strindbergs play ”The Ghost Sonata”

The film shows the animator and puppeteer Lisa Björkström making puppets for an animated version of Strindbergs play ”The Ghost Sonata”. 

Nils Claessons PhD-project is about narrative and aesthetic structures in animated film. The project is hereby based on Claessons own memory of Ingmar Bergman’s performance of Strindberg’s "Ghost Sonata". During the process he will investigate those memories and explore Bergman’s choices in a later performance of the same play. Furthermore Claesson will investigate aspects of time and pace in animated movies, using the Japanese concept ”kawaii” and a series of paintings thematically or historically related to Strindberg’s play.
