COUNTRY FRANCE/ FINLAND
ABOUT THE PROJECT
CINE BOAT Polyglot was managed by NISI MASA with Euphoria Borealis in Turku, Finland on June 2011.
Tutor: awarded documentary director Peter Kerekes (Slovak). 18 young directors from all over Europe. 15 days in Finland. 1 boat ...6 exciting shorts documentaries shot during a boat trip through the Finnish islands ! The Finnish archipelago is a bilingual region’s. This identity was tied into the high number of Swedish-speaking Finn. The line between a Swedish Finn and a “Finnish” Finn was clearly not only a linguistic one, but how deep did the differences go? Also, how could their case be related to other European contexts, as well as multilingualism as a daily reality for many? The project would span two years and involve hundreds of participants, coming to a climax during 2011 in Turku, as our cinema network celebrated its 10th year of activity
