How to Pick Berries

2010 / Finland / 19min

Visitors from a distant place appear in the misty swamps of Northern Finland. The locals grow restless - things are changing, secret berry spots are revealed and everything is getting uncomfortable. Who is to blame and who is profiting from all this? How to Pick Berries is an exploration of Finnish mind and the absurdities of global economy.
