Short films

Short films written and directed by Hannaleena Hauru. Watch and enjoy.

Extract from “Säälistäjät” (2015). Note, all other films below full versions of the films. For distribution reasons, Säälistäjät only with a teaser.

Ice Hockey film by Heidi (2017)

A spin of from the feature film “Thick Lashes of Lauri Mäntyvaara”. Heidi’s fantasy about hockey player Lauri Mäntyvaara is continuously failing. The film studies the encounters of optical and haptic cinema, and the change in the power structures of the cinematic gaze.

Finnish title: “Älä kuiskaa ystävän suuhun”. It’s a 10 minute short shot in Summer 2009 – examining the borderline between platonic and romantic love through two linking time levels. Shot on S16mm.

“Conflict with a god” (2010) is something short and fun, a part of my MA thesis for Aalto University.

Jos kaadun (If I Fall)

“A nordic, but still universal film expressing the search of love in a poetic story of few words. The flawless directing of the film deals with human relations on many levels and with great complexity.”

-Jury’s statement: Uppsala International Short Film Festival Grand Prix 2008

Based on Samuel Beckett’s poem “Comment dire”. Shot in Paris in 2013.

“Cathing” was made in Argentina and Spain. It’s actually a sequel for my short “If I Fall”.

“Adultery”, a one shot short film, made as part of Kino Euphoria International Kino Kabaret in 2011.
