Red Heritage is a documentary film about The Finnish Civil War in 1918 from the perspective of one family. The film tells the story of the artist Carl Sebastian Lindberg’s great-grandfather Antti Meritähti who fought for the Red Guards, as told by Lindberg’s relatives. The fact that Lindberg’s great-grandfather fought for the Red Guards is still a taboo in the family. One of the interviewees, the artist’s uncle, is not willing to show his face in the film. We only see his hands.
