Pilvi Takala at IFFR
Portrait of six poker professionals who live among a larger poker community in Bangkok. For them, playing poker is more a way to make money than a passion. Screened in the lobby of the Manhattan Hotel.
Several monitors appear in semi-public spaces around the festival centre. Takala invites us to follow her game of trespassing and challenging social situations. In all of her videos and performances she enjoys causing confusion with her subversive role-play.
Drive with Care
New film from former Prix de Rome winner provides a deadpan lesson in social psychology on an American campus.
Takala roams the corridors of a trendy co-working space, awkwardly touching people as part of a workers' well-being programme.
