The Linnaeus Expedition

Having been offered a permanent job at Folke Rydén Production after my workexperience I was working on this very big project. The third documentary film at FRP was a film that would be shown in Swedish cinemas and later SVT. It also travelled to different filmfestivals around the world. I was the postproduction assistant.

Short Synopsis:
Expedition Linnaeus is a documentary film to commemorate the tercentenary of the birth of the world-renowned natural scientist, the Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus (Carl von Linné).

The film is a journey of discovery to seven continents, into space, down into the depths of the oceans and into the future. At the centre are crucial questions: How should we behave and act today in order to survive tomorrow and how can science and research contribute to a better world?

Inspired by Linnaeus curiosity and the thrill of discovery, the expedition meets some of the world’s leading researchers and experts, who try to give answers to these questions.
