Gorelovka – Episodes from the Life of a Disappearing Community

World Premiere
Alexander Kviria | , | 48 mins

The village of Gorelovka is located in Southern Georgia. It was founded in mid 19th century by Dukhobors, a group of Russian religious dissidents banished by Czar Nicholas I. They managed to keep their identity and traditions throughout the Soviet period. However, under political and economical pressure, many Dukhobors have now left Georgia and this ancient heritage will disappear with the last inhabitants.

How to Pick Berries

UK Premiere
Elina Talvenssari | | 19 mins

Visitors from a distant place appear in the misty swamps of Northern Finland. As harmless as they are, their foreign presence unwittingly disrupts the peace of local inhabitants. They have come to look for berries, an activity that all of a sudden seems to embody all the values of the local culture. Who is to blame and where do the profits end up? How to Pick Berries is an exploration of the Finnish mind and the absurdities of the global economy.
