This year marks the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence. Äideistä parhain follows the story of a young Finnish boy, Eero, who is temporarily sent to Sweden during the Second World War to live with a Swedish family as a foster child. Told through the eyes of a child, the film gives exceptional perspective to language identity and how the war affects an individual who cannot choose his own path. In Finnish and Swedish with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)
