The climax of this passionate drama / thriller takes place on a remote beacon island far away from help. This slowly building, almost horror title bears resemblance with Mauritz Stiller’s Aarne-herran rahat (1919) and the brilliance of Gardiens de phare (1929) by Jean Gremillion. A copy of this long lost title was found in 1993, and will most likely get it’s premiere in Finland.
A short film You Look Like a Thought From the Past by Miska Tuononen will be shown before the movie.

You Look Like a Thought From the Past is a hypnotic silent film by Miska Tuononen. Instead of dialog, the story progresses trough movement and music. Ethereal mood is amplified by the music (composed by Animal Genie), making it feel like a visit to hazy subconsciousness. When a stronger form of communication is needed, the actors begin to dance.
