Laulu (Selma Vilhunen  |  2014  |  Finland  |  12)

Oscar-nominated director Selma Vilhunen’s documentary about the passing on of Finnish oral traditions documents two years in the life of Jussi, the last-surviving Finnish rune singer, and his student Hanneriina, a young woman with a mysterious past. A lyrical rumination on roots and connections full of humour and mystery, ‘Laulu’ is a moving testament to the healing power of song as a binding force between people and communities.
