Director/Writer: Peter Von Bagh
Peter Von Bagh is a Finnish film historian and director of Helsinki, Forever (2008) which screened at the FIRST NORDIC FILM FESTIVAL in London last November 2012.
As a companion piece, his latest documentary Splinters offers an insight into the work of artist Johani Aho and his family.
Narrated by architect Eero Saarinen and Peter Von Bagh, it spans a century of creative output from his wife Venny Soldan-Brofeldt, sons Heikki Aho and Bjorn Soldan, covering their contribution to art in film, and daughter Claire Aho’s photographs. With Martii Turunen’s original score it provides a fascinating and nostalgic backcloth to Finland’s contemporary art scene. MT
