Also, In Memoriam by Niina Suominen received one of the three Special Merits. Jury members were film director Dani Kouyate, documentarian Kit Thomas, director/cinematographer Ville Tanttu and Gitte Hansen from the First Hand Films.
“We are taken on a trip of thoughtful moments from a question sung to us and the characters in this film: What instrument would you like to have played at your funeral? A film that leaves the safety of spoken or written word behind, and communicate with through music and visuals and faces filled with wonder, doubts, worry, humor and joy. It is moving and meaningful as it addresses a subject that is often shrouded in taboo – our own death and our relationship to it.”
