Ruben Östlund


Ruben Östlund was born in 1974 on Styrsö, a small island off the West Coast of Sweden. An avid skier, Östlund directed three ski films testifying his taste for long sequence shots. Östlund went on to study film at the University of Gothenburg where he developed his sense for constructed and well thought out sequence shots which has continued to evolve in his short and feature films until now. The director has also become known for his humorous and accurate look at human social behaviour.
