Hanna Ojala: Writer, Director and Producer
Hanna Ojala: Key Cast
I often feel caught in the past, almost ghost-like, when drowning in thoughts, but during meditation I suddenly wake up to reality and for a brief moment I feel awake from the nightmare of the mind.
The soundscape is a recording of a poem slowed down. The poem below:
Pure pristine panic
under seven silent suns
I grab you by your shadow
and run your hemline through my melting fingers
it is cold and it is dark
and it is falling away from me
owning a million moons
cannot make me calm like your name
so we ride and we ride and you slip
from my fingers gone
again there they are
the seven suns summoned
holding onto my head
my poor hot head
meeting its maker beyond its boiling point
where my pupils flee from me
through the rusting skies
but still I fight and they fight
and it all in it all fights around my name
I cannot see but I hear you
piercing a single blue dot in which I dive
inside it it snows.
Hanna Ojala is a poet and a self-made filmmaker as well as a dance movement therapist from Finland who has finally found her way of creative expression through dance and video poetry, and is keenly learning more every day. She savors verbalizing actual events in an abstract way as well as describing the visceral effects of inner emotions – making invisible visible and visible indefinite.
"I am an artist who loves to surprise herself by combining elements which when put together create something completely unexpected. I call it "a divine coincidence" when two or more seemingly separate things complement each other in a way that they form a whole new entity larger and more complex than its parts (usually I recognize this happening by having chills up and down my spine)."
