DECENT, ALWAYS
Statement
The 1970s. Ostrobothnia in Western Finland. Elvis dies and my parents divorce. A new concept is introduced in school maths: set theory.
    Based entirely on archive material, Aina kunnollinen (Decent, always) is an experimental, autobiographical documentary about a child’s confusion about the facts of life. The film dips into the logic and dimensions of a child’s thinking through warm humour and associative visual narrative. Its supporting themes include fear of difference, shame, guilt, and the longing for something that is not.
    Duration: about 19 min.
