Peripheral Europe in film

"Young European cinema... is discovering the continent's peripheries. Europe's virtually forgotten and often half deserted regions are becoming discursive spaces in which the possibilities, but also the flaws, in Europe's structure are discussed," Hans Schifferle writes, commenting on the film festival "Crossing Europe" which took place in Linz. "Perhaps Finnish film best captures the spirit of European cinema; this is peripheral cinematography par excellence... Finland and Finnish film often give the impression of being what could almost be called an exotic wasteland in time and space – frequently impressive, full of searing boredom, but offering small gaps which leave space for original ideas, for new opportunities and developments."
