Salla Tykkä’s Retrospective in the competition @ Curtas Vila do Conde

Salla Tykkä’s Retrospective is selected for the international competition of Curtas Vila do Conde, held from July 9–17 in Vila do Conde, Portugal. The festival is a major cinematographic and cultural event in Portugal.

Premiered in the international competition of Oberhausen Short Film Festival this May, Retrospective is a short film about the difficulty of remembering and the importance of forgetting. A film essay portraits a middle aged woman who tells about analogical cameras she has been using during her life, for art and film making. Her hands are shown opening and closing the cameras and testing if and how they still function.

Salla Tykkä’s (b. 1973) films have been shown at international film festivals such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam (Tiger Award 2014 for Giant), Tribeca Film Festival in New York and International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

Curtas Vila do Conde, Portugal, 9–17.7.
