Volcano Room

Tommi Matikka

The viewer follows a 5-year-old girl into the depths of an island as she witnesses wonderous things: The island draws her to the source of its sweetness, a bridge emerges in the middle of the sea and the dead are smiling. Volcano Room is a thoroughly poetic short film. The narrative merges the past reign of large lizards, the borderless present, and the future that will never come. The viewer is led beyond fantasy – to an era where the animated dream images force him to take a deep breath and dive.
