The Venice International Film Festival will feature a film by Elina Talvensaari
The Venice International Film Festival will be held between 1 and 11 September 2010. One of the two competition series at the festival, Orizzonti, will feature How to Pick Berrie (Miten marjoja poimitaan) 19 min., by Elina Talvensaari, student of Aalto University School of Art and Design.
The Venice Film Festival has renewed its Orizzonti series, calling it a laboratory that combines new forms of cinematic expression, regardless of the films’ genre or length. For this reason, the series features a mix of short and feature films, fiction and documentaries, traditional expression and experimental movies. The directors screening their work in the series include names like Manoel de Oliveira, Catherine Breillat, Isaac Julien and Paul Morrissey. The Orizzonti series’ jury is chaired by Iranian contemporary artist and film director Shirin Neshat.
How to Pick Berries is a film about Finnish heart and the peculiarities of the global economy. The economy is a many-splendoured thing. Guests from far away appear at Lapland’s swamps. “How are we going to get along with these strangers when they’re taking our berries?”
