“Message in a bottle” (00:01:44) by Sami Ala, Finland/France, 2023
My film is inspired by Guy Debord’s film “La société du spectacle.” It is a sarcastic variation on one of the film’s themes: human loneliness in society and in the world.
Sami Ala graduated as a painter in 2002. For the past 15 years, he has focused exclusively on video art. Often the starting point of his work is a text, either his own or someone else’s. His works have been exhibited in Finland, Europe, Asia and America.
