Frozen Images / Jääkuvia
Frozen images offers a glimpse into the souls and fates of the people who inhabit the harsh landscape of the North.
A single mother raises her kids by drawing on hate and anger. A drowned boy observes the way of the world from the bottom of a lake. A young girl tries to break free from her mother’s apron strings but the big wide world offers no succor.
Life is grim, bleak and brutal, but punctuated by sudden flashes of dark humour.
