Sweden's Official Festival for Documentary Films called Tempo Documentary will be on in Stockholm 5-9th March. As a part of the festival an exhibition will take place on Center of Photography. Mobila dokumentärredaktionen (the Mobile doucumentary team of editors) travelled in the spring of 2007 around Sweden and collaborated with elderly people in four cities and towns, collecting and depicting reflections on life and reality of and by senior citizens.

The participants, about 200 retired people, produced together with the team an extensive material that has been shaped into 25 short films, 35 radio documentaries, one feature documentary for The Swedish public service broadcaster – Sveriges Television (SVT), a book and a large amount of still photos.

The exhibition at the Center of Photography will open on 6 March and will be on until 16 March. Read more about this event on www.tempofestival.nu/english/
