JOURNEY TO ALEPPO

Directors:  Juuso Lavonen and Vesa Rajala

Screenwriters:  Juuso Lavonen, Vesa Rajala and Rostislav Aalto

Producer: Rostislav Aalto

Genre: Short  Documentary

 Aleppo is a city in north-western Syria, located about 50 km south of the border with Turkey. Today it is considered to be the most dangerous and restless city in the world. Its inhabitants live in a state of constant fear and threat. Their existence can be compared to sitting on a time bomb. An unusually disturbing short documentary tells a story of a Syrian-born Finnish citizen Rami Adham who delivers humanitarian aid to the city's children.  The film is an unforgettable journey into the heart of true hell.

MONGOLIAN AFTERNOON

Directors:  Rostislav Aalto

Screenwriter:  Rostislav Aalto

Producer: Rostislav Aalto

Genre:  Short Documentary

 

The film follows the father's and daughter's journey to her sister in the countryside of Mongolia. They are going to slaughter a sheep before dark. Nomads do the slaughtering themselves. But before its death, the sheep was able to live and graze in the wild. Shot during one night, the film is tranquil in rhythm and very powerful esthetically as the setting sun paints the Mongolian steppe red. The film provides a contrasting perspective on the use of animals in western agriculture.

SOUNDS LIKE SUOMI

Director: Rostislav Aalto

Screenwriter:  Rostislav Aalto

Producer: Rostislav Aalto

Genre:  Short Documentary

 

The film is a fun and engaging "road movie" of the Finnish musicians' joint concert tour to China in 2005. Included in the tour were Cleaning Women, Ovali Virta, Jori Hulkkonen, Aku Raski (Huoratron) and ThemShepherds.

 

The electrifying music that deviates from the mainstream and the young musicians make the film extraordinary. The camera follows the tour to the sweaty rock clubs, the Chinese disco, and the whole family's park concerts.

The tour was organized in the spirit of cultural exchanges and thus shows a glimpse of a lesser-seen nightclub world. 

 

Producer Jani Joenniemi guided the musicians through China from Beijing to Hong Kong. In the course of 18 days, a lot of things happened. Luckily, he is assisted by Juho Pöysti, called  the "chump", who keeps a good spirit throughout the journey.
