The experimental short films Forêt Shell (2015) by Tuomo Kangasmaa 
have been selected for the Uppsala International Short Film Festival.

Forêt Shell presents an urban story and its setting in Northern Finland. There used to be a service station along a highway outside a small town, a popular stopping place for travellers and meeting place for the youth in the 1960s-80s. Local people called it “Forest Shell” (Forêt Shell in French). The examination of the urban story and personal memories from the service station of the past as well as historical facts blend into a narrative and myth on the video.

Fôret Shell will also be screened at the 28th Festival Les Instants Vidéo, organised in Marseille, France between November 6 and 29, 2015.

Forêt Shell is distributed by AV-arkki. AV-arkki is the Distribution Centre for Finnish Media Art. AV-arkki distributes and promotes Finnish media art to festivals, events, museums and galleries worldwide.
