  • Eastern Memories

  • Original Title:
  • G. J. Ramstedtin maailma
  • Screening Time:
  • Year:
  • 2018

  • Eastern Memories is an unexpected road movie into the far east of Mongolia and Japan. Seamlessly intertwining the past and the present into a visually stunning journey of adventure and exploration, love and death, conspiracies and the fall of nations. All told by a dead Finn from the distant north.

    Director’s Statement: History and time are curious things. Both are experienced in different ways in different cultures. Time in the west is a singular linear line, for the buddhists it’s a circular existence. Our thinking has become quarterly and short-sighted, the past and the future are being erased. The experience of time and how it has changed during the modern period, is a key element of Eastern Memories – it’s a window into time and history, a glimpse of humanity and the good and bad in all of us.
