When spring slams birds on trees by Tuija Välipakka

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

Finnish poet Tuija Välipakka‘s words, translated by Pirjo Raila, appear as text on screen in this film by Tuija’s daughter Mikaela Välipakka. (There’s also a version in Swedish, I assume the original poem: När våren slungar fåglarna i träden.) The music is by Eemeli Sutalainen. The description at Vimeo reads:

Life is an endless stream where birth and death aren’t static. We exist before our birth and we live as long as even one remembers us.
