Rakkaalleni (To my love)


Facade renovation locks young woman inside her apartment. During a reconstruction of her home and herself she writes a letter to her loved one.


Rakkaalleni (To my love) is a documentary audiovisual mosaic created amid a painful period of depression. The images and the text were built around each other, based on my journal-like entries, as a consolation to myself. The film is a breath of air from inside of a repair process, a promise of a return.
