LITTLE WING
TYTTÖ NIMELTÄ VARPU
2016, 100 min, Finland, Dir: Selma Vilhunen

Director Selma Vilhunen’s debut feature is an uplifting story about a young girl (newcomer Linnea Skog) who decides to track down her father after being disappointed by her immature mother (Finnish pop star Paula Vesala, in an affecting dramatic turn). Like its teenage heroine, the film tackles issues such as bullying, poverty and mental illness with considerable maturity and respect. Nominated for 10 Jussi Awards this year. “A tender-hearted coming-of-age story shot in a low-key, realist style.” - Alissa Simon, Variety.
