Are you longing for more love and/or anarchy? Come experience the FIRST DATE WITH LOVE & ANARCHY -screenings in Bio Rex and see two of the autumn festival’s highlights with us! 

In honour of the final day of Helsinki Pride, we are showing the Berlinale favourite ALWAYS AMBER (2020). The wild and heartfelt film by Swedish filmmakers Lia Hietala and Hannah Reinikainen tells the story of non-binary and transgender teenagers in Stockholm, who refuse to define themselves only based on their gender identity. 

Get a glimpse of this year’s exceptionally strong US indie selection in the form of the striking visuals of WAVES (2019), which finally gets its Finnish premiere. It Comes at Night director Trey Edwars Shults’s films portrays the tailspin of a black family in the US. The film has been celebrated for its impeccable soundtrack, which features Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Tame Impala
