PLANTHEON – Teuri Haarla & Ulu Braun (FIN / GER)
A feature documentary film. 61 min, 2015.
Every body’s life is a private research-center of happiness, sorrow and pain. Our film presents Teuri’s one. Plantheon is an intimate and experimental portrait of the Finnish artist Teuri Haarla, and focuses on his wholistic methods dealing with infancy trauma and social pressures. The film accompanies him while building a tower, making his ego-melting rituals, reflecting religion and philosopy, keeping balance with family. “Lets just say that after childhood I needed some rest”. The film arose from the friendship between filmmaker Ulu Braun and Haarla, which allowed a spontaneous and artistic co-operation of documentation. We hope that these cumulative survival strategies, creativity and unusual methods of ”Amateuri” can inspire others.
