“Mercy all the way” gets honorary mention at POLARIZED Festival.

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.”
