Anssi Kasitonni’s Le Saboteur will be screened at Glasgow Short Film Festival, held from March 22–26 2023 in Scotland. Le Saboteur is included in the screening “For Shorts and Giggles“, screened on Thursday, March 23, at 21.00, and on Saturday, March 25, at 17:15.
In Le Saboteur, an ex-saboteur gets back in the game and every trick will be exposed! A short action film about the joint adventure of indie filmmaking – with all the special effects. Le Saboteur is distributed in collaboration between AV-arkki – Centre for Finnish Media Art and Raina Film Festival Distribution.
Anssi Kasitonni is a skateboarder and an award-winning artist from Sahalahti, Finland. He has worked in music, drawing and sculpture, but to many of his fans, the most beloved of his works are the short films he makes at his own farm. The films deal with age-old questions related to morality, love, death, generation gaps, sexuality and, of course, submarines. The ideas are epic, the films decidedly homespun. His movies create their own world that tells us something essential about ours. Kasitonni won the esteemed Ars Fennica Award in 2011.
