Jaakko Pallasvuo’s, Antti Jussila’s & Jari Kallio’s Fruits of the Loom (2019) shared the main prize of EMAF with Dora García’s Segunda Vez / Second Time Around (2018). The 32nd European Media Art Festival (EMAF), held in Osnabrück from April 24–28.
Jaakko Pallasvuo received the EMAF Award for “Fruits of the Loom” in Osnabrück. A communist and a capitalist fall in love. Together they try to escape society. Their child later questions their escapades. Here the jury judged: “In addition, we distinguish a sincere and humorous mixture of dry performance, theatrical dramaturgy, serious socio-political discourse, cinematic narrative trophies – dealing with optimism, despair, puppet play and wild originality”. Fruits of the Loom premiered at IFF Rotterdam in January 2019.
