Restorative film

The research project focuses on producing film as a synthesis of art, film, nature and green rehabilitation. A starting point is that film can provide the sort of soft fascination that within environmental psychological research is ascribed a so-called restorative effect. However, there is a lack of knowledge of what types of film correspond to the needs of various patient groups.

The project Restorative film is a collaboration between researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and the film director Marianne Strand. The purpose is to evaluate film vis-à-vis various health care environments. The first part of the project (which started in March 2012) is lead by Helle Wijk, senior lecturer at the Institute of Health and Care Sciences, and concerns how the design of the environment in retirement homes influences the residents' health and quality of life.
