A donation of €2 (or more!) is suggested and would be very welcome. Strange Events by Kanerva Cerderstöm Strange Events is a dream-like film journey through a city that resembles Helsinki. The main characters in the film are a tram, city dwellers travelling on board it and crossing its route, dogs, other animals – and some Special Cases. The film draws its inspiration from certain events of which the city´s residents have written letters to the Newspaper, as well as experiences the director has been through or heard of. The film takes place during one day, in the Tram, on the streets and in parks and yards. During the journey, the peculiar and the ordinary, the tragic and the humorous and the absurd and the normal change meaning. People, things and the city are viewed with amazement, devotion and smiles
