Helsinki, Ikuisesti (2008)
(Helsinki, Forever)

Helsinki, Forever is a portrait and city symphony of the White City of the North.  It is a montage film on the City of Helsinki by the award-winning Finnish film director Peter von Baugh.  The film is a portrait of Helsinki and its “soul”, as well as an essay on Finnish culture in general.  Its collage of best Finnish film, fiction and documentary alike over a hundred years, produces a dazzlingly original film in its own right.
