Virpi Suutari (Finland) for the film
Hilton! – Täällä ollaan elämä (Hilton! – Here For Life)
The film, calm and composed, accompanies a group of young Finns who just live for the moment between unopened bills and self-rolled cigarettes.
Inspired by the attention of the intelligently positioned camera, they become gradually aware of their situation. Initial attempts to jointly organize their lives are made.
Mira’s singing, one of the film’s female protagonists, merges the episodes into an impressive filmic composition which we definitely consider worth a prize.
