    Swedish Covid nurse to watch entire film festival alone in lighthouse

    A Swedish nurse has won a competition to watch the entire 60-movie programme of the Goteborg Film Festival from a lighthouse on an isolated island off the coast of Sweden.

    Lisa Enroth beat 12,000 film fans from around the world who applied.

    The nurse, who has worked on Covid-19 wards during the pandemic, said she hoped to enjoy "being part of a totally different kind of reality for a week".

    This is kinda amazing. I feel my cynical instincts brewing (what about the logistics, how big is the screen, aren't those waves kinda loud, who can watch 8 movies a day, what if something happens and isn't this just a PR stunt?) but it's actually just plain cool! I don't think I'd have what it takes, though.
