The filming of the 2014 IHME Project has just ended in Kirkkonummi. This year’s work commissioned for the IHME Contemporaray Art Festival is the film True Finn – Tosi suomalainen by the Israeli artist Yael Bartana. The film is about Finnish national identity, and what we talk about when we talk about Finnish identity right now.

Participating in the work were eight people with different cultural backgrounds, who were selected to join in the work via an open call at the end of last year. They are: Komugi Ando; Mustafe Hagi; Stanislav Marinets; Anna Miettinen; Tiina Pirttilahti; Martin-Éric Racine; Peter Rosvik; and Tuisku Torkkeli.

The film’s premiere is on March 31 at the Bio Rex cinema (Helsinki). Entry to the screening is free. You may also watch the film on Yle Areena from March 31 until May 31.
