2019 The Happiest Man on Earth

Miehiä ja poikia
Director: Joonas Berghäll
Production: Satu Majava / Oktober Oy

Teemat: boys, men, feelings, communication, masculinity, wellbeing, equality, Finnish society

Finland is the happiest country in the world, says the UN report. The stories of the film are joined by this theme of wellbeing and equality, because the question is, why men in Finland still die six years younger than women. The individual stories reflect the masses in contemporary Finnish society.
