Eija-Liisa Ahtila's films and cinematic installations explore and experiment with narrative storytelling, creating extraordinary tales out of ordinary human experiences. Her masterfully crafted narratives, touching portrayals of character, and highly individual mode of expression have captured the public's interest and won critical acclaim worldwide.
The films deal with separations, teenage girls' sexuality, relationships among family members, mental disintegration, and death. They investigate the processes of perception and the attribution of meaning, while the installations break down the story and divide it across the exhibition space. The stories are based on interviews and research, the results being transformed into material for the imagination during the scriptwriting process. The impossibilities generated by the the imagination are seamlessly incorporated into realistic settings using special cinematic techniques, and it is these fantastic events that five Ahtila's films their distinctive style - a man materializes out of nothing in a dimly lit room: a young woman's anger rages through her student apartment in the form of a hurricane; a group of friends falls through the ice on a winter lake and sinks into the frozen world of the drowned.
Eija-Liisa Ahtila's films have won numerous film-festival awards and she has received several visual art prizes. A retrospective of her installation works has been shown in some of the most prominent contemporary art museums worldwide.
