Walks With Me

kNOwBOX dance Film Festival 2023

Official Selection Film Spotlight


Walks With Me

Walks With Me / Texas Premiere / Finland / 11:00

80-year-old Sanna lives alone with her memories and houseplants. One day Sanna sees an event from her window that makes her reminisce about her friends and notice her own loneliness.



What do you hope to communicate with our audience through your work?

The starting point has been to tell about aging and loneliness through long lasting friendships. I hope that the viewer will stop to think about their own friendships from the perspective of aging.
