Released in 1998, Drifting Clouds continues Kaurismäki’s sardonic yet sympathetic look at ordinary people who simply want to survive in the face of huge social and economic turmoil. Following the dwindling fortunes of restaurant hostess Ilona and her tram driver husband Lauri, who both find themselves unemployed at the same time in recession-hit Helsinki, this film is a comic tragedy that manages to transform the pair’s unlucky plight into a hugely affecting story of hope.

This screening will be preceded by Kaurismäki’s short film These Boots (1993, 5m).
