Boiling Point

Finland 2017

In Finnish, English and Arabic with Finnish and English subtitles

90 min

For audiences aged 12 and above

We are living in an age of controversy. A flood of refugees is coming to Europe where great numbers of the working people and the middle classes are deeply hurt by globalization as jobs disappear to countries with low-pay circumstances, and profits vanish to tax paradises. Populist movements incite the poor to fight one another. Meanwhile, progressive, green, and leftist movements remain in self-satisfied bubbles, having lost touch with the people. -- Elina Hirvonen challenges prejudices and records surprising encounters which border on violence but also may show a promise of dialogue.
