Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Eija-Liisa Ahtila's films and cinematic installations explore and experiment with storytelling, creating extraordinary tales out of ordinary human experiences. Her masterfully crafted narratives, touching portrayal of characters, and highly individual mode of expression have managed to capture the public's interest, whilst also winning critical acclaim.

Dealing with teenage sexuality, family relations, mental disintegration and death, the films also investigate the process of perception and attribution of meaning. By mixing and subverting the filmic rules of commercials, cinema verite, pop promos, trailers and documentaries with a lyrical close of Nordic supernaturalism, the films attain on air of contemporary familiarity combined with intense oddness, giving Ahtila's work its distinctive style.

Eija-Liisa Ahtila's films have won numerous film-festival awards and visual art prizes. As part of a retrospective at her installation works in some of the most prominent contemporary art galleries worldwide, the Eija-Liisa Ahtila: real characters, invented worlds exhibition at london's Tate Modern in 2003 exposed Ahtila to a wider British audience. This the first time her films are releashed in the UK.
