Mika Taanila has compiled this years Nordisk Panorama collaboration with Malmö Konsthall. The exhibition “Narrative Tremor” looks at the short but rich tradition of experimental film and video art in Finland. The works range from historical celluloid landmarks to analogue video art, and finally to more recent digital gems. The focus here is on cinematic concept, structural approach and sound, rather than on obsessive storytelling.”
