Tove – Release News

Blue Finch Film Releasing presents Tove in cinemas 9 July

Helsinki, 1945. The end of the war brings a new sense of artistic and social freedom for painter Tove Jansson (Alma Pöysti). While focusing her artistic dreams on painting, the enchanting tales of the ‘Moomin’ creatures she told to scared children in bomb shelters, rapidly take on a life of their own, bringing international fame and financial freedom. Her desire for liberty is put to the test, when she meets theatre director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen) who ignites an electric and all consuming love in her. But while she begins to find her artistic identity she discovers the true love she yearns has to be reciprocated, and only by forging her own path can she learn to be free.

Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, with an HD digital release, the film made some pretty startling predictions at the time about the internet, smartphones, virtual reality and social media. Some came to fruition, others were way off the mark, and some were just plain ridiculous.

Drunk Bus – Release News

Blue Finch Film Releasing presents Drunk Bus on Digital Download 24 May

Michael (Charlie Tahan) is a recent graduate whose post-college plan is derailed when his girlfriend leaves him for a job in New York City. Stuck in Ohio without a new plan of his own, Michael finds himself caught in the endless loop of driving the ‘Drunk Bus’ – the debaucherous late-night campus shuttle that ferries drunk college students from parties to the dorms and back.

When the bus service hires a security guard to watch over the night shift, Michael comes face-to-tattooed-face with Pineapple, a 300-lb punk-rock Samoan who challenges him with a kick in the ass to break the loop and start living or risk driving in circles forever.
