Remember the Moomins? Catch this special doc exploring the life of their creator, Tove Jansson.

As part of Watershed's Moomins Mania season celebrating the 70th anniversary of the show's creation, this special one-off screening tracks the woman behind Finland's most cherished export.

This BBC film reveals the autobiographical elements behind the Moomins series, from Jansson's bohemian life as an artist in war-torn Helsinki to becoming a recluse on a remote island.

The screening will also feature a Q&A with children's author and contributor to the film, Philip Ardagh.
