Henric de la Cour


A feature film by Jacob Frössén

”I’ve always had the attitude that my music should sound more like a funeral than a birthday party.”

-Henric de la Cour

A feature-length documentary film about the musician Henric de la Cour. A reluctant anti-hero of the Swedish music scene, de la Cour made a name for himself as singer in the groups Yvonne and Strip Music in the 1990s and 2000s while battling with cystic fibrosis since he was a child. Filmmaker Jacob Frössén’s film portrays de la Cour’s struggle with a rare disease that he has kept secret for most of his life, and which has largely influenced the dark and moving music he makes. A film about confronting your own mortality and making the most of it, the creative process as a desire to create light out of darkness, and about music as a form of personal survival.
