ANGEL OF THE NORTH

Information on the activity

October 10, 2019 to October 11, 2019

What on earth is the meaning of Finland’s most famous painting The Wounded Angel, created by Hugo Simberg in an insane asylum in 1903? Here’s a movie tailor-made for lovers of fantastical documentaries, thought-provoking oddball flicks, art, Finnish angels, elves, trolls and other little people, magic trees, madness and brain-teasers of all stripes. This cinematic essay in the form of a shamanic journey probes the idea of death and may even open the doors to the beyond. A strange investigation that will lead to much post-film discussion.
