The Extraordinary Ordinary Life Of José González
The Extraordinary Ordinary Life Of José González
This “extra-ordinary” film revolves around the life and mind of world renowned musician José González. Using congenial methods; video diary, surveillance camera, concert footage, tour documentation and animation, directors Mikel Cee Karlsson and Fredrik Egerstrand give form to something as elusive as the creative process of one of Sweden’s finest—and most secretive—musicians.

We follow José González through intimate and unique scenes shot during work with his highly celebrated second album In Our Nature. In his studio, at home and on tour. Through a diary, based on personal voice recordings we follow his everyday reflections and the sometimes struggle and process to write great songs. The film gives us an exclusive insight into the, at many times, lonely creative process and of one persons attempt to manage and understand his own existence. The film was shot over a three year period on location in Sweden, Japan, Singapore, United States, South Africa, England, Chile and Argentina.
