Minna Rainio’s and Mark Roberts’ Entangled in the international competition of Dokuma FF, Croatia

Minna Rainio’s and Mark Roberts’ Entangled (2016) is selected in the international competition of DokuMA Film Festival, held in Makarska, Croatia, from 30.5.–3.6. The film will be screened on Wednesday, May 31, at 21:15 in the garden cinema.

Entangled illuminates our complicity and entanglement in the lives and destinies of workers in Asian textile factories. The film examines the issue from an unusual angle, focusing on children’s clothes and experiences to make viewers uncomfortably aware of the price paid to manufacture their clothes.

Minna Rainio is a photographer and media artist. She holds a BA degree from Surrey Institute of Art and Design, England and MA from University of Lapland, Finland and completed her PhD in 2014. Rainio has worked as a visiting Professor at the University of Minnesota, USA and as Lecturer at the University of Lapland.

Mark Roberts is a visual artist and scriptwriter from the UK who is currently based in Finland. He holds a BA from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design, and an MA from the University of Salford, Greater Manchester.

Together Rainio and Roberts combine media art, conceptual art and documentary to deal with social and political issues. Rainio and Roberts have exhibited widely in Finland, Europe and United States including Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki (2004), Finnish Photography Triennial 2006 at Salo Art Museum, Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst in Aachen, Germany (2008), and Finnish Cultural Institute in Paris (2008), as well as numerous international festivals.
