Risto-Pekka Blom's and Tuomas A. Laitinen's films @ Kyiv International Short Film Festival
Risto-Pekka Blom‘s Theme Park (2015) and Tuomas A. Laitinen‘s The Powder of Sympathy (2015) are screened through AV-arkki’s distribution at Kyiv International Short Film Festival, held from April 20–22 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Blom’s Theme Park was selected in the international competition of the festival. It 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. Theme Park has won the Main Prize at Tampere Film Festival and Helsinki Short Film Festival in 2015.
Laitinen’s The Powder of Sympathy will be screened in the experimental programme Videoart XXI. The film is a hypnotic journey to the material mediation of our existence. The healing properties of copper are juxtaposed with its conductive role in the development and continuity of electricity-dependent modern societies. The Powder of Sympathy is screened this week at the European Media Art Festival as well.
