The Swedish artist Tore Kurlberg lived in a fishing village on the coast. He rarely exhibited and hardly sold any paintings, but everyday he went to his studio and painted the view from his window: the horizon, the roofs, the sky and the sea. His work became increasingly abstract until all that remained were lines and dashes on the canvas, in hundreds of variations. Now the house is to be sold and the place is being emptied. Books and furniture are thrown out the window and the paintings are given away to his extended family in a lottery.
Tore, the sky & the sea is inspired by the abstract and minimalistic paintings of Tore, the unique light and shapes of the Swedish west coast. It's scetching the life in Tore’s hometown town, his artistic motifs, his dreams and his doubts. Tore, the sky & the sea is a film about dedicating your whole life to one idea. Narrated by Swedish actor Tomas von Brömmsen.
