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.
