48 hours non-stop Finnish films marathon curated by the Midnight Sun Film Festival: ongoing at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival


A 48-hour Finnish, classic-to-contemporary film marathon kicked off on November 24 at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia. In the framework of celebrations for the centennial of Finnish independence, Tallinn is now the stage of the special tour dedicated to cinema, “Finland 100 Years – Through the Eyes of Cinema”, a selection of Finnish cult films curated by the Midnight Sun Film Festival. Thanks to the collaboration with the Tallinn Film Festival director, Tiina Lokk-Tramberg, the staff of the Midnight Sun Film Festival was also able to organize a full immersion into Finnish atmospheres with a mobile sauna, a Finnish Underground Bar, live music with Poutahaukat (the band playing in Aki Kaurismäki's The other side of hope), karaoke and dance sessions with old Finnish hits, such as Sixties tangos.

The film list includes The White Reindeer by Eric Blomberg (1952), Jörn Donner's Perkele! (1971) and  "Portraits of Women" (1970). Born in 1933, writer and director Jörn Donner, founder of the Finnish Film Archive and producer of more than 60 films including Fanny & Alexander (1984) by Ingmar Bergman, received yesterday a Life Achievement Award. The film selection also included Calamari Union (1985), Take Care of Your Scarf, Tatjana (1994) and Man Without a Past (2002) by Aki Kaurismäki, and The Count (1971) by Peter von Bagh.

Photos of the 'Finnish Underground Bar' were sent by Ari Lehtola, executive director of the Midnight Sun Film Festival, shortly before the inauguration. More details about the event at the Black Nights Film Festival in Tallin
