Tender - 15 min - North American Premiere

“Tender” transports us to the sunlit morning of a small Finnish town, to quietly witness the almost ritualistic washing of a newborn infant and an elderly man — respectively the town's youngest and oldest residents.

Closely following the interaction between the carer and the cared-for, “Tender” reminds us how profoundly we depend on the concern and labor of others. It asks us to imagine how every attentive touch remains with us throughout our lives, embedded, carrying us from our past into the inevitable future.
