Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Despite having sponsored films by Ingmar Bergman, and many others, director Kenne Fant was subjected to an incredible amount of ad hominem abuse when he released this film. Fant, an actor and later a director, managed to offend many sensitive types during his chairmanship of the State Film Institute and of Svensk Filminsustri AB. The futuristic story concerns the persecution of a schoolteacher who commits the crime of encouraging his students to think for themselves and uses an example from physics to illustrate his point.
