    The Crawl. Short film 2004 - 26min, HD ”While taking a swim I have often stopped to watch the competitive swimmers’ speedy progress in the pool. They form a wedge, like a long line, as they swim in succession with enormous intensity, at times it seems as if they were floating above the water. There is something mystically fascinating about it, as though the water was folding beneath them, like wheat under the blades of a thresher." The director has transferred this experience he describes above into a visually breathtaking film. ”Swimming feels like being on an eternal journey - never arriving." A visual and delicately poetic story about the relationship between a swimmer and water. A young competitive swimmer Sirja Luomaniemi meets the world’s fastest woman swimmer in her dreams and races her. The Crawl is set almost entirely in or by the water. It uses images to explore the significance of water in the philosophy of swimming. It is not a biographical documentary of a swimmer, although the main characters are real competitive swimmers. Even though the film explores the profound meaning of the interface between a swimmer and the water, it is just as much a story of the meaning of a sport to an individual, a young competing athlete. It speaks of devotion and a search for one’s own place in sports and life. Contact: programme.sales@yle.fi

    Lakes of Finland trailer. 2012 - 6 x 28 min, HD, M/E. If Finns were asked, what best symbolizes their home country, the answer would most likely be the holy triangle: sauna, birch - and lake. A lake, if any, is the symbol of Finland. Finland is not the land of a thousand lakes, it's the land of tens of thousands of lakes. 187 888 lakes in all, if you count the ones that are over five ares in size. All put together, they cover a tenth of the whole country. In Lakes of Finland we take a close look at the Finnish psyche. Six lakes portray history, culture, landscape and nature, politics and beliefs. Suitable for the whole family, these documentaries are a personal journey into the minds of many Finns captivated by the lakes - from lake cottage enthusiasts to professional fishermen, from artists to divers, and from timber rafters to ice fishers.

    Noste - an Underwater Dance. Short film 2014 - 4 min, HD The dance-themed short film Noste is an aesthetic journey to the world of underwater dance. The dancing, the impressive underwater environments and the touching music will create an ethereal and thought provoking visual work together. The premise of the film is to investigate how water and the weightlessness created by it influence the body, the movement and the fluidity of dance and its dynamics. The film attempts to answer the question of whether a person is able to express and create an artistic, movement-based work when the natural circumstances are radically altered. Noste is a short film by dancer-choreographer Etel Röhr in which she uses dance to contemplate what would happen to movement and the culture of dance if the world would be covered with water and a new human race would begin its life underwater, living on the terms of the new environment. At first she practiced her moves on the surface, but had to forget all she had learned after she dived underwater for the first time. The experience gave a whole new meaning to the term “weightless space”, and she had to learn everything she had been taught again on the water's terms, including her moves, the angles and even the most crucial human skill; breathing.
