Dear friend of Arkadia, You are invited to the screening of two short films “The Oracle” and “Tom Encounters a Reunion” by Jens Toivakainen on Wednesday 27.4 at 6pm.Both of the films are unique and experimental both visually and in the storytelling, and combines live action footage and 2D animation. Jens will be present and will gladly answer all questions related to the films. Welcome! Warm regards, Ian Entrance is free and green tea will be served. A donation of €2 (or more!) is suggested and would be very welcome. “The quest for individual liberation can most certainly be seen as one of the essential themes in the western history of thought. In his two short films, “The Oracle” and “Tom Encounters a Reunion”, Jens Toivakainen has been developing a personal expression of this theme. Rather than on the physical and social liberation, he has been focusing on the individual’s mental and/or spiritual liberation, liberation from those powers in life that hold back and represses mans self-realisation.” Jens ToivakainenBorn in 1982, in Helsinki, Jens Toivakainen graduated as a BA (hons) in Video Arts Production from University for the Creative Arts in Maidstone, Kent. He is now working as a freelance in Helsinki.
