    Canary / Kanarialintu

    Finland, 8', 2020

    age recommendation: 8+

    Every morning thousands of children go to school like canaries in a coal mine, measuring toxicity. The film deals with the chain of harassment and the way we all are broken in our own ways.

    Risto-Pekka Blom

    He was born in 1970. He graduated from technical education but never felt motivated to pursue a career as technician. For a few years he was looking for his purpose in life, until in the age of 27, he started a short course of Audiovisual Media and Expression, after which he graduated from Tampere Polytechnic School of Art and Media in 2005. Since then his video art and experimental short films have been exhibited in festivals and events in over twenty countries. His film "Theme Park" (2015) has won the Main Prize of the National Competition at Tampere Film Festival in 2015.
