ONE NIGHT. ONE COUNTRY. FINLAND
24th October 2020
Together with the Finnish Cultural Institute and the Embassy of Finland, we are screening AURORA by Miia Tervo. Aurora, a commitment-phobic party animal, meets Iranian Darian one night at a hot-dog stand in Lapland. Darian is running from death and Aurora is running from love. They need each other in order to finally stop running.
9 times awarded director, MIIA TERVO, addresses some big themes such as asylum seeking and female alcoholism. While the main lead, MIMOSA WILLAMO, captures the restless feelings coming from a remote place with a lack of opportunity.
