Tingsek - Something to Live For

Peter Karlson, 60 min, Sweden.

A documentary directed by actor Patrik Karlson about the headstrong Swedish soul musician Magnus Tingsek. We meet Magnus during months of change. Move to another studio in an already long list of studios. Preparations and rehearsals for a musical challenge and childhood dream of Magnus in a collaboration with Vindla String Quartet and keyboardist Mans Mernsten and lots of music from two packed concert nights at the venue Klaffbron in Malmoe, Sweden. Between rehearsals, moving and studio building Magnus speaks candidly about the choices and sacrifices he has done to "do his own thing" without the involvement of too much commercial forces. A story of a, in many aspects, uncompromising man and his career choices. Choices that may seem odd in a time when the road to fame more often go through different reality show competitions.
