Little Wing movie screening

Join us for a screening of Little Wing by Academy Award-nominated Selma Vilhunen on Saturday, July 28, 2018, from 2 pm to 3:45 pm at the Embassy of Finland.

Little Wing

Varpu, a 12-year-old girl, has no father and her mother acts rather like a younger sister. Her childhood turned into adulthood by force. One night, she has enough of her riding buddies, of her mother, of making up stories at each question about her father. Varpu has a stolen car and her father’s name. She decides to drive up north to reach a place where unexpected truth unravels. An ultimate burden will change forever the lives of Varpu, her mother and her father.

Addressing adolescence, healthy relationships and mental health, Little Wing showcases the conflict that can arise in the stages between childhood and adult life.
