An acclaimed Finnish artist
known for moving-image installations, Ahtila's newest work is a dreamlike
exploration of death from moral, political, and philosophical perspectives.
Resonating with contemporary Western/Arab relations, the film references
the 1950s killing of a French boy by his two Algerian friends. Utilizing
split screen, animation, and digital effects, Where is Where? screened
