Steam of Life
Directed by: Joonas Bergh
Friday, July 30 - Thursday, August 5, 2010
Naked Finnish men in saunas speak straight from the heart and in the warmth of rusty stoves, cleansing themselves both physically and mentally towards the film’s deeply emotional and unforgettable finale. The film travels through Finland, inviting men of all walks of life in many different saunas to share their touching stories about love, death, birth and friendship — about life. STEAM OF LIFE reveals the men’s naked souls in an exceptionally intimate and poetic way.
