The greatest short films from Finland and abroad.

#takemeanywhere (2016)

In mid-2016, Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner embarked on a month-long project to hitchhike the internet, in an artwork commissioned by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London. Each day, the trio posted their coordinates online and waited for a ride. Whoever then appeared could take them anywhere they chose. For the duration of the project, their journey could be tracked in real time online, with their path entirely in the hands of the public. Starting in the Rocky Mountains outside Boulder, Colorado, their journey saw them travel over 10,000 miles, zig-zagging coast to coast across the continent, venturing into Canada, before ultimately ending up on the shores of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. The film offers a glimpse of the inherent wonder and vulnerability of being tracked 24/7 online […]. Luke Turner (1982, UK), Nastja Säde Rönkkö (1985, Finland), and Shia LaBeouf (1986, USA)

Metatitanic (2018)

Did you fall in love with Titanic as a teenager? Were you a survivor of one of the world’s biggest emotional shipwrecks? Hannaleena Hauru (Thick Lashes of Lauri Mäntyvaara, Love & Anarchy 2017) watched the James Cameron blockbuster for the first time since her teens, and realized all her past relationships have followed a romantic pattern learned from Titanic. Rose (Hauru) and Billy Zane (Kimi Vilkkula) have a plan: move to a picturesque neighbourhood, get a dog, and get pregnant. However, a middle-class hetero romance isn’t that simple. Stressed-out Rose meets the bohemian Jack (Jussi Lankoski) and lets loose. Is Jack Rose’s Leonardo DiCaprio or just an iceberg? A metafilm filled with pop cultural references, Metatitanic deconstructs the performative essence of romantic love. Translation: Arttu Manninen The short film JUCK(THRUST) is screened before the main film.
