“In today’s Finland, is it worth living, dying, or fucking?”
This is the fundamental question of the feature documentary Fuck Off 2 – Images from Finland which is Jörn Donner’s sequel to his film Fuck Off! Images from Finland (1971). The essayistic documentary is an attempt to depict the enormous change that has taken place in the Republic of Finland during these 46 years. In the centre of this subjective and egocentric story is the filmmaker himself.
Fuck Off 2 – Images of Finland is connected to its predecessor also through music. Many of the songs from the first film have now received new arrangements and new performers, but the lyrics have remained unchanged: they are just as current today as they were in 1971.

Cinematographer Rafael Donner is present at the screening.
The first movie to be screened at the 3rd Pori Film Festival is NOCTURAMA (2016) which is directed and written by Bertrand Bonello. The movie depicts a group of Parisian adolescents who execute terrorist strikes with divergent ways and unknown motives.
The immersive movie is not only stylish but a profound dive into the tense atmosphere of Paris and the existential landscape of our time.
The screening is held in cooperation with Kinokellari and Midnight Sun Film Festival.
