Need, kelle silmis Kurat on ilmtingimata kuri ja hirmuäratav tüüp, muudaksid kindlasti oma meelt, kui nad ühineksid temaga unistustetüdruku otsinguil. Kui asi puudutab armastust, on isegi Kuradil hing!

If you think the Devil has to be an evil, sinister and scary guy, you will surely change your mind after you have joined him on his search for the girl of his dreams...Because when it comes down to love even the Devil has a soul!

Producer: Sophia Rosa Schwert

12aastane Daniel elab koos vanema venna Patrickuga tornlinnakus asuvas kommuunis. Patrick elatub varastatud lemmikloomade leiutasudest või saadab väiksema venna korteriuste taha “Aafrika nälgivate laste jaoks” annetusi koguma. Päriselu karmi reaalsuse eest põgeneb Daniel enda loodud fantaasiamaailmadesse.
See on karm ja poeetiline lugu väikesest poisist, kes peab vägivaldses maailmas varakult täiskasvanuks saama.

Patrick likes to abduct pets to get the money reward or he sends Daniel through the floors to collect donations “for poor Children in Africa”.

DOCUMENTARY 10`52``
UNIVRSITY OF ART AND DESIGN

Director: Heli Sorjonen
Cinematographer: Heli Sorjonen
Producer: Heli Sorjonen

Kas mehe saatust juhib bürokraatia või hoopis saatusejooned peopesal? „Võta aeg maha“ on tragikoomiline lugu 30ndates Anttist, kelle töö- ja armuelu on hakanud allamäge minema. Siiski pole ta lootust kaotanud: „Ma kavatsen elada üle kaheksakümne aastaseks ja olla surres täie mõistuse juures. Miski pole veel läbi.“

Is a man’s fate settled by bureaucracy or by the lines of his palm? „Slow Down“ is a tragi-comic address by a thirty-something Antti in a time when both his working and love life have started to go downhill. “I will live to be over eighty and die sane. Nothing is over yet.”

Heli Sorjonen on Helsingi Kunsti- ja Disainiülikooli tudeng. Tema film on osalenud Lahti ja Tampere filmifestivalidel.
