Q&A with:
Adam Paaske

An ethno­graph­ic comedy show­ing people at leisure in the set­ting of the ‘som­mer­hus’, a sort of summer res­i­dence pop­u­lar in Den­mark. Among the cast: a teenage girl who treads water in an indoor swim­ming pool, two old sis­ters bemused by a TV system, some drunk­en friends indulging in a risky game of darts, a man in under­pants hooked on vir­tu­al real­i­ty and a woman with a nervy Shih Tzu who nar­rates how they spend their day.  

Unfold­ing within a summer day, the debut of Danish anthro­pol­o­gist Adam Paanske sheds a loving, crit­i­cal and humouris­tic light on the mun­daness of every-day life and simul­tan­ious­ly raises an exis­ten­tial ques­tion: How do we spend the time we are given?
