Tonight I'm not afraid to walk over dark
Finland 100 years of Independence

Hahkiala Manor, Hämeenlinna

 

Actor Seela Sella, soprano Pia Freund and pianist Kristian Attila put together words and tones about human destinies from the history of independent Finland. Through the stories of artist couples and encounters of artists they picture us what is meant to be alone and together, flourish, grow and give up, be in the midst of creation and destruction. Dare to trust, reach out and walk over the dark.
