Night Garden

Kuukka Raakel

Night Garden is an atmospheric portraiture of a deserted house and its garden, which has burst into bloom amidst the darkness. Apple trees bear a heavy fruit, bats fly around, geraniums glow in colors of red, and a ghostly music plays over it all. Still, there is beauty!
