Hyvästi jää / Farewell

Risto-Pekka Blom | Finland 2015 | Experimental | 4 min
    P+D: Risto-Pekka Blom. S: Petri Koskimäki. Contact: Vesa Puhakka,
    Song: "Oi ystäväin, oi armahain".
    Tampere Film Festival (TFF), National Competition 10
    11+12 March, 2016, Plevna 5, 2

TFF: "A film about the disappearance of our familiar earth and about personal longing."

AA: A playful movie. It starts with wordplay: "hyvästi jää" means both: "farewell" and "farewell, ice". The song is about taking a farewell ("Oi ystäväin, oi armahain, älä unhoita minua niin kauan kuin vereni lämmin on mä muistan sinua"". Fascinating time-lapse footage from the air, on traffic on snowy roads where people appear as black dots against a white expanse. Low angle shots of jets flying in the sky.
