Utopia is a story about the fleetingness of life in a world, where words don’t matter. The main stage, the forecourt of Tampere Culture Center Laikku is portrayed through hazy scenes shot with a pinhole camera. Its nuanced life from early spring to late autumn creates a feeling of dreamy timelessness. Skateboarding scenes are located in different levels of urban environment and also, far from home.
Utopia combines narrative styles of observational and poetic documentary with the typical fisheye lens aesthetics of skate videos.
The film is a story of longing and need for silence. Utopia of wordless co-existence.
