Into the Forest I Go

Director: Anu Kuivalainen
FI 201791 min. 0 sec.
The film in its entirety is set in the forest: the protagonists sleep under spruce trees, make art, hunt with their dogs, hold techno raves in the summer night and earn their living as forest owners. As the film progresses, one gains a more versatile view of the forest as a biological organism, a spiritual retreat for humans, a source of inspiration and as a complete living environment supporting us all. A documentary by Anu Kuivalainen, takes a journey deep into the Finnish forest, often linked with the Finnish soul and mentality. This film is a polyphonic study about the relationship between human and nature. Without judging anyone’s point of view, the film lets the fortest speak for itself.
