Forward at FIFA in Montréal

Forward (Fram) directed by Valtteri Raekallio in collaboration with Thomas Freundlich, gets its North American premiere at the International Festival on Films on Art (FIFA) in Montréal.


10 am

Concordia University, J. W. McConnell building

De Sève Cinema LB 125, 1400 Maisonneuve Blvd. West


Thomas Freundlich and Valtteri Raekallio are among the new generation of contemporary dance artists in Finland with awards, grants and acclaim at home and around the world.

They journey to the end of the earth, in order to dance in the polar wilderness of Svalbard, Norwary.  En route, they explore our ideas of the Arctic, along with the grand questions of life and art. Forward is a unique and engaging journey to a place where few have been – and even fewer have danced.
