Vladimir Film Festival

Did you know that winter nights in Malmö, Sweden could last up to 17 hours? Want to know how the stu­dents at Bryg­ger­i­ets gym­nas­i­um cope with that? Denial.

At Bryg­ger­i­ets gym­nas­i­um every­body is in deni­al dur­ing winter. In their minds, they’re out skat­ing and swim­ming in Fažana, Croa­tia. In their dreams they’re at the Vladi­mir Film Fest­iv­al. In real­ity they’re sit­ting in math class, star­ing out the win­dow at the sun that will most likely be set by the time they fin­ish learn­ing how to incor­por­ate let­ters and ran­dom sym­bols into our quad­rat­ic func­tion. But the deni­al keeps them going. It keeps them motivated.

They wear sunglasses dur­ing winter to give the illu­sion that the sun hasn’t set, it’s just dark because they’re wear­ing their sunglasses. Hope­fully someday they’ll be wear­ing these same sunglasses in Croa­tia while doing front­side airs and sip­ping on an ice cool lem­on­ade. But until then they’re here to share our deni­al-dreams with the rest of the world. So wherever you are in the world, wheth­er it be sunny Croa­tia or not so sunny Malmö, buy these sunglasses and you will see the class of 2022 attend the Vladi­mir Film Festival.

These sunglasses are designed by the class of 2022 at Bryg­ger­ites gym­nas­i­um and all profits will go towards their class trip to the Vladi­mir Film Fest­iv­al. Thanks for the support!
