Having kicked off its monthly series of country-specific special programmes with October's German Film Festival, Toho Cinemas at Roppongi Hills is now gearing up for this look at contemporary Finnish cinema. Five flicks will be screened over five days; among them are award-winning documentary Tale of a Lake (2016), which recounts how Finnish culture and traditional religion draw on the aquatic life of lakes. Another highlight should be 2 Nights till Morning (2016), Mikko Kuparinen's quirky little romantic drama about two strangers stuck in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, while The Mine (2016) offers a semi-fictional look at the shady dealings related to the opening of a huge nickel mine in the Finnish countryside. The full lineup is here (in Japanese only).
Note that all films will be screened with Japanese subtitles only.
