The Flogsta roar

18 minutes

Every night, hundreds of Swedish students scream their anxieties into the sky

Flogsta is a shabby student ghetto in Uppsala, Sweden. Within the cramped walls of its dormitories, a multitude of dramas play out, involving broken frying pans, a never-ending orchestra rehearsal, an injured heart, and, most distressingly, stolen food. But these students have a unique outlet for the anxieties of dorm life. Every night at 10pm, they participate in collective catharsis, by screaming their worries into the sky.
