27.04.2016

Risto-Pekka Blom’s Theme Park (2015) was awarded with a honorary mention in the international competition at the Kyiv International Short Film Festival, held from April 20–24.

Theme Park is a video about an air-filled figure at the shopping centre. The voice-over gives a twisted insight to the popular self-help discourse. The film won the Main Prize at Tampere Film Festival and Helsinki Short Film Festival in 2015.

Risto-Pekka Blom (b. 1970) graduated from Tampere Polytechnic School of Art and Media in 2005. Since then, his video art and experimental short films have been exhibited in festivals and events in over twenty countries.

Tuomas A. Laitinen’s The Powder of Sympathy (2015) was screened in the experimental programme of the same festival. Both works were selected through AV-arkki’s distribution.
