The Nordic Talents Pitch Prize went to Finnish writer/director/producer Kaisa el Ramly and her fiction project Scenes from a dying town. She graduated from ELO Helsinki Film School.
The film observes moments in the life of people seemingly living in the past. It looks at a small community through the eyes of an outsider. What happens when a stranger enters your territory and breaks the protective shell?
