Director: ANASTASIA LAPSUI & MARKKU LEHMUSKALLIO

The film portrays the arc of human life from infancy to old age and all the way to the grave. Life is like a moon’s reflection on the water, comments Lehmuskallio in presenting this anthology of his works.

Markku Lehmuskallio’s film is a metaphoric summary of a lifetime of filmmaking above the Arctic Circle. Lehmuskallio, 70, a former forest technician, has worked for the last 40 years with filmmaker Anastasia Lapsui, a radio journalist, born in Siberia, and specialist in the indigenous languages of the Lapp Sami/Siberian cultures bordering Finnish and Russian Arctic. Travelling has been described by many as a masterpiece among his dozen films from the region.
