Finnish movies at the festival:

-FRI 06 SEP, 8PM: Hevi Reissu (Heavy Trip). Watch the trailer here.

In this offbeat comedy from Finland, Turo is stuck in a small village where the best thing in his life is being the lead vocalist for the amateur metal band Impaled Rektum. The only problem? He and his bandmates have practiced for 12 years without playing a single gig. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway--the promoter for a huge heavy metal music festival--and decide it’s now or never. They steal a van, a corpse, and even a new drummer and embark on an adventure of Spinal Tap proportions.


-SAT 14 SEP, 5PM: Ilosia Aikoja, Mielensäpahoittaja (Happier Times, Grump). Watch the trailer here

An octogenarian farmer - The Grump - wants to die, because all the work is done; the meaning of life is gone. But just as his own coffin is being finished, his 17 year-old grandchild Sofia suddenly appears - she is in trouble and needs the stubbornness and wisdom of her grandfather and the warmth of the fireplace. Rejuvenated by her unexpected appearance and with a new meaning of life thrust upon him, the stubborn old man and the young city girl begin their adventure - and a descent into the unravelling secret of her surprising arrival.

 

The festival is organized with The Projector. Don't miss the chance to see films from other Nordic countries as well! See the full program and buy your tickets here.
