14.3. Helping Mihaela
2011. Hanna Myalett. 98 min.
A Roma beggar on his knees raises many extreme emotions: guilt, rage, sympathy and frustration. Most people just walk on by, but there is always someone willing to help. In this film, the director follows the confrontations between the Roma beggars from Romania and Finnish people, and is forced to question, over and over again, her own ideas about helping.
28.3. Their Daily Bread & Shoplifting
28.3.Their Daily Bread
2007. Ilkka Ruohonen. 44 min.
Film observes the daily aspect of our daily bread from the point of view of the product itself. The continuum of pictures opens anthropological and cultural views on the status the bread has in the Finnish Euro-culture that dreads wrong types of carbohydrates. The film takes a tour in the corridors of hospital filled with long-term patients; simultaneously constructing a workmanlike anthropological vision on how the personnel earn their daily bread under a heavy workload.
2009. Ilkka Ruohonen. 37 min.
You could say that how society works can be seen in shoplifting. It's a kind of panorama, a spectre from the point of view of consumption. Shoplifting causes the damage of 400 Million euros for the retail trade in Finland last year. How can a shopkeeper react to that situation? The film is an anthropological-sociological analysis on the theme.

2011. Aleksi Raij. 52.
Glassy waves, swaying palm trees, shorts and bikinis, a careless lifestyle somewhere exotic and warm. These are the visions that spring to mind when you dream of surfing. But what if that dream took place in Finland?
Now it's snowing and you’re covered with frost. Temperatures are already below zero without the 30 m/s wind whipping at you from across the shore. Even the seawater is close to freezing. It’s dark, it’s cold, it’s miserable. And just then, a man in a 6mm wetsuit comes charging through the storm and disappears into the roaring waves. What the…?
FinnSurf is the world’s first Finnish surf film. Told through the lives of five Finnish surfers, it’s more than a surfing documentary, it’s a story of true love and that intense, overwhelming passion we all feel for what lights our fire in the coldest of places.
FinnSurf is about leaving boredom, fear, and regrets behind in order to find tranquillity, harmony, and fulfilment. It’s about a world where life is your dream and your dream is lived every day—no matter where it takes place.
