”Cinema has abilities that no other medium has: to show the world as it could be, as we wish it to be and as it has been before us. It's often the inner worlds that are the most interesting. Cinema is a dream machine that can do anything” -  Juho-Pekka Tanskanen

 

"I wish with my films to be able to give the viewers a little insight to my mind, and also to help them find something possibly forgotten from their own, or to help them realize something completely new; let it be a feeling or a moment or an idea - that would make them think about themselves and the world around them." - Isabella Karhu
