KUORIUTUA, KUKOISTAA, KUOLLA
TO FEATHER, TO WITHER

Hanna Hovitie | Belgium, Finland, Hungary, Portugal 2020 | Experimental, Documentary | 20 min

A young female taxidermy apprentice is working to give new life to deceased birds. She is fascinated with one species in particular – crows. In ancient myths and legends, the crow represents a mediator between life and death. For her, death is not a strange thing, but something tangible, an inseparable element in the cycle of existence. In her world, a black cat is playing curiously with an unfinished crow and a piece of meat embodies both the demise of an animal and a new beginning, nurturing a newborn bird fluttering in its nest. Portrayed in a language of symbols, the film lingers somewhere between documentary, fiction and poetry.

REKONSTRUKTIO
RECONSTRUCTION

Pia Andell | Finland 2021 | Documentary, Fiction | 18 min

Reconstruction tells about a certain night in 1982, reconstructed in 2020 by the people who lived it through together. The film combines dance, drama and documentary, but most of all is a story of a friendship of a boy and a girl, and how jolly situations can turn sour and how, even though close, friends do not share same experiences – and that can have an effect on their friendship.
