    Emissionary Men. 2014 - 53 min, HD. The purpose of emissions trade is to cut down carbon dioxide emissions, and direct the industries to invest in low-carbon production. The outcome, however, has not been as expected. The documentary is a tragicomic story of how we are trying to save the world by shifting the emissions from one place to another. It's like we've forgotten that we should also cut down, not just buy and sell. The story begins in Kenya, where two businessmen, a Finnish and an American, are trying to make business out of emissions trade. As the carbon market collapses, the shock waves are felt everywhere: in Finland, in Brussels as well as in Kenya. 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.
