This year’s commissioned project for the IHME Contemporary Art Festival, the Israeli Yael Bartana’s art film True Finn – Tosi suomalainen, is to premiere on Monday, March 31, at 18:00 at the Bio Rex cinema, Helsinki. The film is in Finnish with English subtitles. Immediately after the performance, cultural journalist Minna Joenniemi will interview Yael Bartana in English, and the participants in the work, the people who appear in the film, in Finnish. The event has free admission, so we recommend the advance booking to guarantee your seat. Please sign in here by Monday, March 24. The premiere showing will be the only performance of the work in a cinema.

We are happy to announce that the time limit for viewing the IHME Project on the YLE Areena online on-demand-TV service has been extended, and geographical access expanded: the film can now be viewed online until the end of July, from anywhere in the world!
