A Moment in the Reeds (10/28)

October 28, 2018 @ 10:30 am

A Moment in the Reeds

New York City Premiere

Dir. Mikko Makela, Finland, United Kingdom, 2017, 107 mins

In the Finnish countryside, Leevi, who is home from studying abroad to help his father renovate their lakeside house, encounters Tareq, a Syrian asylum seeker they hire as a handyman. Leevi’s father returns to town on business as tension builds between the two young men, and they give in to their mutual attraction. One of the first LGBT-themed films made in Finland, Mikko Makela’s intimate drama places at its center the freedom and acceptance of sexual and ethnic minorities amid the backdrop of the breathtaking Finnish landscape.

Writer: Mikko Makela
Cast: Janne Puustinen, Boodi Kabbani, Mika Melender, Virpi Rautsiala

Also screening on 10/29 at 9:15pm at Cinépolis 8.
