As part of the Nowness ‘Director Talks’ series, Christian Larson films a portrait of cult auteur Jonas Åkerlund.
The Swedish visionary talks film and domestic sanctuary in an intimate 16mm portrait for Christian’s CDLP underwear brand. Christian started his career as a film editor for Jonas so is perfectly placed to provide an insight into his friend and mentor.
“This is a voyeuristic portrait of a man that has always inspired me” – Christian Larson.
“Last summer, I spent an afternoon with Jonas in his black house in LA with my 16mm camera and later recorded a late-night phone call of ours. These two elements make up this little voyeuristic portrait of a man that has always inspired me, and kindly mentored me with good advice.”
