In Memoriam

Suominen Niina

In Memoriam is a stop-motion animation about the human ephimerality. Images of the desolate building combined with the soundscape of an auction form a meditation on what will be left behind when we have left the stage. Abandoned buildings and their spirits are in the main role.
