Milja Viita’s Q competes at Tricky Women International Animation Filmfestival

Milja Viita’s Q is selected in the international competition of Tricky Women International Animation Filmfestival, held in Vienna, Austria, from March 15–19.

Milja Viita’s Q is a conceptual film about forces that change the world. The artist’s firstborn son transformed, in the blink of an eye, into a young man. Q takes us to the end of the worlds, the depths of the ocean and to the ruins of Atlantis. Q is shot on 16 mm film with hand-coloured surface.

Milja Viita‘s (b.1974) installations and films consist of experimental and documentary elements. Her works have been exhibited in e.g. Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Kunsthalle Helsinki, Mänttä Art Festival and in film and media art festivals internationally. Milja Viita lives and works in Porvoo, Finland. She graduated with MFA degree in Time and Space Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2005.

The screening of Q will take place in the Austrian Film Archive on Friday March 17 at 17:00 and on Saturday March 18, at 15:00.
