“Miten sanotaan” awarded as best experimental short film at Helsinki Short Film Festival

miten-sanotaan-still-iivi-meltaus

http://hlef.fi/31-helsingin-lyhytelokuvafestivaalin-palkinnot-jaettu/

Jury’s statement (in Finnish):

– Haurun elokuva Miten sanotaan kertoo asian, joka useimmille meistä on tuttu: miten musertavaa voi olla saada pakit, pettyä rakkaudessa ja miten siitä huolimatta innostavinta elämässä on rakastuminen ja rakastaminen. Tästä itsestäänselvyydestä huolimatta teos ei ole lattea, koska se sanoo tämän tutun asian niin tehokkaasti, tavalla joka on samanaikaisesti tyly ja hauras. Teos muistuttaa ensivilkaisulla suorasukaisen tunteellisuutensa vuoksi erityisen onnistunutta iskelmää tai pop-kappaletta, mutta elokuvassa käytetty Samuel Beckettin runo laajentaa teoksen tematiikkaa ansiokkaasti. “What Is the Word”, jonka Hauru on hienosti kääntänyt, laajentaa ja syventää teoksen lovestoori-nyyhkystä johonkin laajempaan ja yleispätevämpään. Haurun elokuvassa on myös parasta näyttelijäntyötä, mitä tässä sarjassa tällä kertaa näimme.

blog for the film: http: //sapsaelokuva.wordpress.com/about/

I’m writing a 30-minute fiction satire together with Tanja for the Finnish Film Foundation & YLE. Six treatments were selected to be written, and in the end 3 scripts will be produced with the support from the funders (up to 200 000 euros). We’re doing our very best to write an awesome script. Our story tells about a group of women working in the unemployment office in a small Finnish town. They have a secret association where they are giving out of pity to young men in order to stop future school shootings in Finland.
