Metatitanic (47 min) is exploring romantic love in capitalism through James Cameron’s film “Titanic” (1997). Meta-Rose (Hannaleena Hauru) and Meta-Jack (Jussi Lankoski) are falling in love while Helsinki is sinking, and jealous boyfriend (Kimi Vilkkula) can’t prevent love from happening.
Finnish magazine Voima wrote about Hannaleena Hauru and Metatitanic as a cover story in November 2018:
Mercy all the way (Säälistäjät), directed by Hannaleena Hauru was awarded with a special mention at POLARIZED! Festival in Rovaniemi 22 November 2015. The theme of the festival this year was Cultural jamming.
Honorary mention: Hannaleena Hauru – Mercy all the Way
“If this year’s theme of cultural jamming had been the sole criterion to work on, the honorary mention recipient Mercy All the Way might well have been the winner. With great casting, brilliant direction and editing, the short fiction makes us laugh for a serious social issue, which is not very often carried out very successfully in Finland. For this, we wish to congratulate and thank Hannaleena Hauru and her film crew.”
