“What if our greatest fear is not death but worthless life?”

This is with such premise that Anu Pennanen started her film shot in Espoo. But it went deeper. I (Minä) is a short film about unfulfilled desire, generic urban internalised conformity, and the archaic space of the primitive. Written by Stéphane Querrec, played by actress Terhi Suorlahti, it also features unmissable interpretations by Ritva Oksanen and Elina Knihtilä, and a must-listen original soundtrack by Vladislav Delay (Warp).
