Arktisen Upeeta: Fucking With Nobody

A screening at Arktisen Upeeta XXI: THE WORLD IS BURNING film festival in Ilokivi.

"After losing an interesting film job to her nemesis Kristian, Hanna teams up with her sister and counterculture friends to create a parody romance on Instagram between herself and young actor Ekku. They are passionate to make visible how the society is hungry for romantic narratives. Hanna starts living a crowd-pleasing love story for the public, only to find herself tangled up in the unresolved past with her “you were never my boyfriend” friend Lasse, who also happens to be the real-life co-writer and cinematographer of Fucking with Nobody.

As the fake-romance starts affecting everyone involved, a hurricane of desires, fantasies, hurt and intimacy is set off. Everyone involved has to decide what they are ready to put in front of the camera. Fiction and auto-fiction crash and melt into each other, as writer-director Hannaleena Hauru plays the lead role of an ever-single film director Hanna." (La Biennale di Venezia 2020)

The screening will open with Morgane Dziurla-Petits short film GRAB THEM (SWE, 2020, 13min.), which tells the story of the struggling love life of the 60-year old Sally, who happens to look pretty much exactly like the current president of the United States.

After the screening director Hannaleena Hauru will take part in a Q&A -session via Skype.
