Originally from Imatra, Antti Lempiäinen (1979) has already had a wide-ranging career in film. While he has mainly worked as a cinematographer and director, he has also done work as a producer, as well as an editor. Lempiäinen’s debut feature Solitaire Dance gets its world premiere in DocPoint’s Finnish Competition. It offers three points of view into what it looks and feels like to be lonely against one’s will, without forgetting to provide hope and comfort.
