JOURNEY TO THE SEA

78 min. 2017 Finland (recorded on the Finnish Gulf)

Directed and shot by Jouni Hiltunen

The Gulf of Finland is one of the most beautiful seas in the world. Its geology, flora and fauna are unique. It’s also been said to be one of the most polluted marine areas in the world. Filmmaker Jouni Hiltunen takes his son to a sailing trip to the Gulf of Finland of his youth. Decades ago the water was clear and the nature diverse. But the sea that once seemed like a paradise, what is it like now, decades later?

MERERETK

Režissöör Jouni Hiltunen (filmitud Soome lahel)

Soome laht on maailma üks kaunematest meredest. Selle geoloogia ja loomastik on ainulaadsed. Kuid see olevat merelistest aladest ka üks saastatumaid. Jouni Hiltunen viib oma poja Soome lahe retkele. Ta ise käis oma nooruspõlves sellisel retkel ja tol ajal oli vesi selge ja merekooslus mitmekesine. Kuidas näeb aga välja meri, mis kunagi näis kui paradiis, aastakümneid hiljem?
