Archipelago Science Fiction

Tellervo Kalleinen

The Turku archipelago islands located in the Baltic Sea and their communities provide the framework for four different future scenarios. These hilarious and sometimes chilling episodes were scripted and performed by the islanders. The surprisingly contemporary and universal stories derive from their own fears and hopes.
