Successful Freezing of Mr. Moro
Production year 1992
Successful Freezing of Mr. Moro was a project commissioned by the County Council of Stockholm to increase interest in education in healthcare, which was losing applicants every year. The attitude among young people towards the program had become that it was for those with lower grades. It was obvious that this was a problem that needed to be solved, as the need of healthcare personnel was predicted to increase within a couple of years. The title of the project derives from a picture of a neatly dressed man frozen in a large block of ice that Roy Andersson had seen in a book of photos. The caption stated “Mr. Moro successfully frozen in a cake of ice”.
