Ronin imageRŌNIN  written by Andrew Paulsen & directed by Ahti Tolvanen

Punishment or restitution? Rōnin doesn't seek to say one is right over the other, but tries to acknowledge the complications that two social change tendencies have in co-existing, and what can sometimes be robbed from “one left” when the other embraces its practices without considering what might be best for the victim. Jill is like a rōnin, (a homeless warrior), drifting through her political landscape, which she once felt she served, but now is kind of lost.

f day webF****** DAY  written by Vladislav Nenchev

directed by Vladislav Nenchev & Zach Chamberlaine

It’s the second Sunday in June. A beautiful day is painted across Vienna, and its focal point is a cozy little café near the Danube. Freshness from the river and couples waft around. One of those couples happens upon the café, undoing the serenity of the day. Joint faults on all sides culminate in various resignations and a Viennese coffee, bitter in emotion, as well as in taste...

babystuff webBABY STUFF  written & directed by Matias Kylliäinen

Parenthood must be tough. At least I think so. There’s so much that can go wrong or take an unexpected turn. But it must also be a lot of fun. 'Baby Stuff' is a comedy about parenthood through the eyes of a 25-year-old. It plays with the whole journey from having a baby to a young adult eventually flying out of the nest. The journey is full of questions like “What will her first word be?”, “Are we good enough as parents?” and “Why on earth won´t you eat?”. You could sum up parenthood in one fundamental question: will this child turn out just fine?

Welcome to the oldest café in town: Molly’s Coffeehouse, established in 1666. In a place like this, you just can’t escape the history (even though you might want to), and its varied menu definitely caters to all tastes (although not necessarily the ones you might expect). Just remember, at Molly’s you can have anything you want as long as…
