Hjalmar Brantings jordafärd på film

Abstract
This article is an examination of the short film “The funeral procession of Hjalmar Branting”. Branting was the first Swedish social democratic prime minister. When he died in February 1925 it was perceived as a great national loss in a country still profoundly marked by differences of class and gender. By way of analyzing the film, in the context of contemporary press and of others sources concerning the planning of the occasion, I discuss the film as an early example of a so called media event. In this light the funeral is explained as a complex rite of national formation.
