Travels with Tove
A rare screening of Tuulikki Pietilä and her partner Tove Jansson’s collaborative “home-movies”, documenting their round-the-world trip to Japan, Hawaii, Mexico and the United States between 1971-1972. Shot on a Konica cine-camera purchased by Pietilä on arrival in Japan, the footage provides a unique insight into couple’s shared life, humour and artistic expression. Narrated with quick-witted observations, the pair take turns operating the camera, turning a lens on the other and the cities and towns they visit.
