About the screenings

In 2010 I was asked to present a screening with my works in Stuttgarter Filmwinter film festival. Instead of just showing my own works I wanted to show works by my friends and collegues, whose works share qualities with my own films. Thus I curated this combination of finnish short films that utilize voice-over, 8 mm film and archive footage, collage techniques, experimental editing and storytelling and told with an intimate and personal tone.
