Help Me

Jenni Luhta

The animation film Help Me addresses President Urho Kekkonen's passing and the emergency of his political legacy. The work is set both in Helsinki of the 1980s and today. It is a misty depiction of the nightmarish environment of the post-deregulation Finland and of the era of Westernization.
