«fika: to have coffee» is a six-part web series about Swedish fika, a small but essential part of Swedish day-to-day life. The series makes an attempt at portraying the popular tradition in six episodes. Episodes were released weekly for free. It was the final project of my studies in Cast / Audiovisual Media at Zurich University of the Arts.

In addition to the episodes, I made seven short videos to very briefly portray the participating cafés.
