No Man Is an Island

Sonja Lindén, Finland, 200616mm, Colour, 40'

A man lives alone on his island. He keeps in contact with his sick wife every day by phone, but shares his everyday life with a cat. His seasonal activities are tinged with his quirky humor and philosophy of life and also music in its many forms. The preparations for his final departure take their time, too. This film is about loneliness, love and letting go.
