The Eternal Sleep of the Man is a collaborative film by Sami Sänpäkkilä and Anna-Mari Nousiainen. The film depicts magical realism and seeks solace in our urban environment. In the passage titled #suomineito (Finnish maiden) a woman in blue clothes and blue hair hangs upside down from a rope in a tree. In the passage Kultasuu (Goldmouth) Nousiainen cuts her hair in the middle of a golden glitter rain and in another passage a man reads a burning book and sings of hope. The work is available as a nine minute short film with surround sound or as a 15 channel installation with two stereo audio channels.
