About Finnish Manhood. The Silent Gender

Filmmaker Samuli Salonen made this short documentary on his own. To do so, he left a fixed camera to film scenes that portray men in seemingly everyday situations. 

Simultaneously, testimonies of male voices are heard talking about the self-absorbed and restrained figure expected of men in this country. This short film is an opportunity to finally speak out and tell the story of these silenced burdens.
