  • Salla: Selling the Silence

    2011. Finland. Directed by Markku Tuurna. The vast, remote wilderness of Eastern Lapland is a place of great beauty, but the stalwart few people who live there struggle to survive amid escalating climate change and the clash between older industries and the new world economy. Reindeer herders and a northern ski resort featuring Father Christmas are dependent on a cold, snowy climate and tourists that don’t always deliver. Other entrepreneurs think up far-fetched ideas to get rich, but a proposed "Las Vegas of the North" would alter the course of rivers and endanger wetlands. In Finnish; English subtitles. 70 min.

  • How to Pick Berries

    2010. Finland. Directed by Elina Talvensaari. In this award-winning student film, immigrant berry pickers collide in unexpected ways with Finnish natives among the plentiful berry bushes in the woodlands of northern Finland. In Finnish; English subtitles. 19 min.
