A revealing fictitious film about lobbying, power and the media. With this film Folke Rydén introduces himself as a fiction scriptwriter and director. However, he keeps the familiar documentary format when telling the story of a lobbyist (starring Anders Beckman) trying to influence the government’s decision on one particular issue. A decision which will affect the profits of the pharmaceutical industry as well as the life of a totally paralysed 14-year-old boy.
Producer: Folke Rydén, for Swedish Television
Camera: Mats Lund
“Anders Beckman is genuinely natural as the main character, the Lobbyist”
“…suveräne Anders Beckman…genuint naturlig i huvudrollen som Påtryckaren.”
