The jury congratulates the maker of this film for boldness, craziness and a body image that differs from the mainstream. This comedy is rudimentarily genius. – Tampere Film Festival, National Jury 2015, Special Prize
Säälistäjät – Mercy all the way is a 30 min short I’ve written together with Tanja Heinänen. sapsaelokuva.wordpress.com
The film is a comical satire about about a group of women working in a Finnish unemployment office. They have started to give mercyfucks to young men in order to prevent future school shootings in Finland. Mirja (35) falls in love with one of her mercy customers, Marko (23). The safety of Finland is at stake. Can Mirja continue her quest to keep all the young Finnish men calm with sex, or does romance have better plans for her?
