Youth Screen

Iris / Ulrika Bengts

The year is 1890. Iris is 8 years old and lives in Stockholm with her mother, who is an artist. Iris is precocious and experienced in the ways of the world. She feels at home among her mother’s modern artist friends. Now she’s waiting for the big adventure; Ester’s exhibition in Paris. On the day of the departure, Iris is shocked to find out that she will not be going to Paris. When the proposed child minders cannot look after her as planned, she is sent by mail boat to Ahvenanmaa – a place she knows nothing about. During this stay, Iris is forced to realize who she is and where she belongs. The production will be the first ever Finnish made feature film for kids in Swedish.
