Catching (2009)

Kaarina (actress Tanja Heinänen) is an unemployed Finnish sawmill worker, who travels to Argentina to work after having enough of the short term jobs and relatioships back up North. The film is a personal statement about the ongoing global transformation of the forest industry.

“Catching” continues from the themes of the sawmill related short film “If I Fall”, by Hannaleena Hauru, 2007. The film is opening a universal aspect to the issues about forest industry – work, and the search of love. “Catching” is combining everyday work to a poetic context with a dramaturgic structure following a cross-section of a tree.
