  A Moment in the Reeds on DVD and VOD [read more]
  Summer love
  Having been studying in Paris, Leevi returns home to Finland for the summer where he helps his father renovate their summer house in the city. An extra pair of hands is required so Tariq, a Syrian asylum seeker is hired. However, when Leevi's father head back to the city, the two boys develop a closer friendship that offers a summer of love.

Previously, writer/ director Mikko Makela has been an actor in such films as How To Talk To Girls At Parties, and has worked on The Coven and Fallen Soldiers. It stars Janne Puustinen (Tom of Finland), Boodi Kabbani and Mikka Melender. With echoes of God's Own Country, A MOMENT IN THE REEDS, Mikko's debut feature, is also a response to the lack of queer narrative in Finnish cinema and places the long marginalized voices of sexual ethnic minorities centre-stage in this intensely heartfelt drama about the search for freedom, acceptance and a place to call home. Significantly, with the film tackling many urgent issues about asylum seekers and racism, it boldly casts Boodi Kabanni, the first openly gay Syrian actor who is himself an immigrant to Finland.

AVAILABLE ON DVD & VOD: 15 OCTOBER. Watch the trailer at the link.
