SKÄRIKVINNOR (2008)

SKÄRIKVINNOR

A lyrical documentary film by Lotta Petronella portrays the life of four different women living in the outer islands of the Åbo Archipelago. Petronella sensitively focuses on the women’s very personal choices, as they share their daily routines during the course of four seasons and charts their stories of loneliness, loss, love and death.

Although representing different generations, they have much in common and all of them consider the fundamental questions of life with openness, warmth and occasional humour. Knowing that they belong on the islands surrounded by nature all four are happily aware that “the meaning of life is not that everything is in order”.
