Vihreä kulta

Grönt guld / Green Gold / L'Or vert. FI 1939.
A recent KAVA print avec sous-titres francais par Aline Vannier-Sihvola. Viewed at Cinema Orion, 2 Sep 2009. - I revisited this great movie for 10 minutes to check the quality of the print: luminous, paying justice to the definition of light by cinematographer Armas Hirvonen and director Valentin Vaala. - The film, based on the play by Hella Wuolijoki, is topical because of its ecological message. - The opening feature of our Kino Forest retrospective, a tribute to the 150th anniversary of Metsähallitus (The Finnish Forest Administration), curated by Ms. Tuulikki Halla.
