    STEAM OF LIFE
    Dir: Joonas Berghäll ja Mika Hotakainen
    Finland 2010, 84'
    In Finnish with Estonian subtitles

    Naked Finnish men in sauna tell very personal, very touching and hard stories, speaking straight from the heart. These are stories about love, birth, pleasure, death, friendship; about life itself. In all its simplicity the camera records the raw and rare beauty of Finnish landscapes, saunas and men all over the country. The documentary reveals men’s naked souls in an exceptionally intimate and poetic way.

    Dir: Piotr Zlotorowicz
    Poland 2010, 15'

    Every summer, Marek and Janina work as charcoal burners in the Bieszczady Mountains. Far from civilization, in the heart of the mountains, they live according to the rhythm set by nature. The documentary joins the man and the woman from dawn till dusk, observing the slow passage of time. A visual anthem to the beauty of life.
