From Matti With Love (Rakkaudella Matti)

Jarno Lindemark - Finland
2019 — Fiction — English subtitles — otto.suuronen@ses.fi

In this uplifting, funny and visceral short from Finland, a middleaged man arrives at a reststop far out in the countryside to pick his bride. The bride is a man like him; dressed like a woman. The meeting sets off a chain of events in the wildest process of selfrealisation. This Finnish roadmovie lovingly portrays how hard it can be to stand by who you really are and must be - even when you’re past the half way mark in life.
