    Tampere Film Festival (National Competition 10), Saturday, 7 March 2015

TFF: "The film is inspired by a story of polar explorer Knud Rasmussen (born 1879). He was trying to find the fund to his next expedition. When he couldn´t find the money, he got really angry and yelled: ”Give me snow, give me dogs; you can keep the rest!” Gimme Winter and You Can Keep the Rest is shot on Super 8 film. The film has been scratched frame by frame manually."

AA: Abstract handmade animation scratched on home movie footage of a ski trek in the darkness.
    A scratch movie - a dark, blurred image - two men on a ski trek - this is a silent - an abstract mindscreen - the story of a quest - the scratching at times overwhelms the Winterreise.
