Visitor - Ensimmäinen Eskelinen (FIN)

Ensimmäinen Eskelinen is a dark-humored comedy about the relationship between father and son. The twentysomething Joona comes home from Helsinki to meet his father Antto. He is on early retirement due a back injury and lives alone in a badly deteriorated house by a riverside in Lapland. There's no mother, and that's something that isn't discussed. The stiff meeting between father and son takes a bizarre twist as a young female arrives at Antto's hut. All sorts of uncertainty is dangling in the air when the men can't talk things through.

Director: Mika Hotakainen Run time: 15 min
