“Our Indigenous Friends” Exhibition 16.−31.5. at Kuhmo Arts Centre

The exhibition “Our Indigenous Friends” by Edina Csüllög, a Hungarian filmmaker and executive director of Finno-Ugric Film Foundation living in Estonia will be shown at Kuhmo Arts Centre.

“Our indigenous friends” is an interactive travelling exhibition which includes films, photos and sound installations based on our three year work with indigenous people in Siberia, Khanty-Mansi area in Numsang Joh camp.

Team of Estonian and Finnish artists and film professionals work each year with 35-60 kids in the Forest Film School, requiring them to use their mother tongue for filmmaking. Most of the time it is their first interaction with a camera, their own language as an artistic tool.

As an outcome you are welcome to see the first Khanty language short films, video art pieces and sound installations. You get to know their faces and stories. They become your friends.

They are the last ones to try to keep their culture and nature alive in an extremely wild environment.

Opening of the exhibition will be held 16th of May at 18 o’clock at Kuhmo Arts Centre. Welcome!
