FULL-LENGTH FILMS
Land Within


Country: Finland, Colombia
Year: 2016
Duration: 60'
Direction: Jenni Kivistö

It is a bridge-film that crosses an immense ocean on a sensorial journey to one of the most unusual regions on the planet. The native Wayuu live in the La Guajira Desert, located between the extreme north of Colombia and Venezuela. They do not consider themselves to be citizens of either of the two countries. Through an observational staging, the Finnish filmmaker also begins to question her own country and this is when she feels a strange connection and discovers that the word “maa" means “land” in Wayyu and in her native Finnish.  With her poetic look and the form of a horizontal epistle, the film breaks the moulds of the classic anthropological film that describes a far-off tribe. Here, there is at least a return journey which deletes both directions, when the land is land, here and there.
