A moving biopic of Finnish visual artist Tove Jansson, author and illustrator of the beloved Moomin cartoon series and books. The film sensitively tells the stories of Jansson’s early romantic relationships with men and women, the power her successful and overbearing artist father had on her psyche, and her eventual self-acceptance and success as an artist. (Zaida Bergroth, 2020, DCP, 103 minutes)

Part of the film series Finntastic! New Films from Finland.
