Something for the Olympic Games

Synopsis“Something for the Olympic Games” portraits a lonely man with a strange obsession. To illustrate the greatness of the game Mikado, which he calls a sport, he has hired a film team to shoot a video complementing his application to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to accept Mikado for the Olympic Summer Games in Paris 2024. But instead of convincing anyone the video gives an insight to his own lonely life, and when his second passion is reveled to be none other than Angela Merkel it becomes even harder to take him seriously.

“Something for the Olympic Games” was written and directed by me (Karl Sterner), filmed by Fredrik Lotto and starred by Viktor Jonsson. It had its premiere at the Västerås Film Festival in October 2018. 

The film is part of a larger project, where eight short films with the same theme and mockumentary approach will be merged into either a web series or a feature film with the Swedish title Vi vill också vara med, English title; “We also want in”.
