Salty Snow

Maarit Suomi-Väänänen

Salty Snow thematises the yearning for a child. The film reflects the innate human need to breed, to create things new. As hopes, expectations, and disappointments become interwoven, life feels fragile and vulnerable, and, at times, the shared sorrow is experienced separately.
