Maja

Henna-Riikka Halonen

Filmed in a snowy forest in Northern Finland, “Maja” refers to the painterly composition of the Nordic landscape painting tradition. It investigates an individual’s relation to nature through the characters in the forest, and asks how our surroundings alter us and are altered by us.
