“The atmosphere was full of respect and it was amazing how many different kinds of people were there! I’d exchange our flag and national anthem anytime for this” – excerpt from audience feedback.
Since the premiere of Yael Bartana’s True Finn more than 10 000 viewers have seen the film online. Bartana’s film can be viewed on the Yle Areena TV-on-demand service until the end of July. You may still comment on the film through our feedback form. Submit your feedback until 31 July here.
According to the feedback so far, many of the viewers would have liked to know more about the new flag and national anthem the protagonists designed for Finland.
