NEW VISIONS – FINNISH FILM STUDENTS ABROAD

Four refreshing, bold and entirely original student films from Finns studying film abroad.

Juror no. 5
dir. Karoliina Gröndahl
A reluctant Belgian must decide the fate of a man accused of murder, alongside his 11 other jurors.

To Feather, To Wither (Kuoriutua, kukoistaa, kuolla)
dir. Hanna Hovitie
Taxidermy, the art of preserving an animal’s body, morphs into a poetic meditation and a pillar of craftsmanship in this short documentary that premiered at Dok Leipzigissa.

Teamwork (Samarbeit)
dir. Rabbe Sandström
In Jakobstad, a wood crafting business offers work, safety, and support to unemployed youths.

Under Control
dir. Ville Koskinen
Pests that live wild and rampant lives taunt Tallinn’s botanical gardens. Increasingly severe actions are taken, yet the problem only seems to be worsening.

(Translation: Lydia Taylerson)
