The Ice Hockey Film by Heidi (2017)

In the experimental short film Heidi’s fantasy about hockey player Lauri Mäntyvaara is continuously failing. The split screen short film studies the encounters of optical and haptic cinema, and the change in the power structures of the gaze in cinema. The film has been shot in collaboration with Hannaleena Hauru’s first feature film “Thick Lashes of Lauri Mäntyvaara”, with the support of AVEK – The Promotion Centre for Audiovisual Culture.
