How do artists view their own work? How does the actor Esko Salminen immerse himself in his roles, how does the writer/director Saara Turunen create a whole new world for the stage, and why does the band 22-Pistepirkko’s frontman PK Keränen end up picking up his guitar time and time again? Is creativity a conscious or subconscious process, a pleasure or a compulsion?
Filmmaker Veikko Aaltonen’s documentary takes us straight into the heart of creativity in the company of artists from different fields and generations. From singer-turned-filmmaker Anna Eriksson to cinematographer Esa Vuorinen and from painter/sculptor Jarmo Mäkilä to actor Hannu-Pekka Björkman, these artists allow the audience to follow their work as they reveal what intuition, inspiration, and love and hate mean for their art. Celebrating the various forms of passion and creative work, the film presents a compelling case for the significance of art.
