FIKA(S) 2024

For the second time, Cinéma Public joins forces with FIKA(S) to put the spotlight on Nordic and Scandinavian cinema. This year, we invite you to discover the world of Tove Jansson, free woman, artist, writer and creator of the Moomins, true icons in Finland and the Nordic countries. We’ll be showing Tove (2020), a biographical film about the author and her extraordinary destiny, as well as Les Moomins et la chasse à la comète (2010), a superb incursion of her famous characters into the world of animation. Something to delight both young and old! Dive into Scandinavian nordicity with Vintersaga (2023), a touching documentary by Carl Olsson that celebrates human warmth nestled in the gentle melancholy of the Swedish winter.

A captivating mosaic of moments in life, gleaned from the Swedish people struggling with the rigors of winter. The film revels in the incongruities emanating from these tableaux, each scene functioning as a little theater of the human comedy.
