Finnish Movie Night: Äideistä parhain

Sat, Sep 16, 3:00 pm
Indiana University Cinema

This semester, Finnish Movie Nights kick off with a screening of Äideistä parhain on Saturday, September 16 at the Indiana University Cinema.


Äideistä parhain  (link to IU Cinema's web page here and Facebook event here) follows the story of a young Finnish boy, Eero, who is temporarily sent to Sweden during the Second World War to live with a Swedish family as a foster child. Told through the eyes of a child, the film gives exceptional perspective to language identity and how the war affects an individual who cannot choose his own path. In Finnish and Swedish with English subtitles.

This screening is sponsored by the Finnish Program at Indiana University, department of Central Eurasian Studies, Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center, Norwegian Language and Scandinavian Cultural Program, Baltic and Finnish Studies Association, and IU Cinema. 


This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.

The event is free but ticketed. A post-screening discussion will follow the film.

Bring your colleagues, fellow students, friends and family, and please distribute this invite to anyone interested.
