Seasons greetings.

Merry Yuletide Everyone! or Hauskaa Joulua! as we say in Finland. Feel free to click on one of my favorite carols (and a very modern one at that) before browsing these few very Christmassy images.  As this might be my last Christmas in Finland for a while, I've selected pictures that are very Finnish in essence.






Rudolf Koivun kansi satuun Joulupukin satuja ja tarinoita. Vuosien varrelta valittuja I, 1932.



And a happy new year!

  9. Hi Milla -- I hope you are having a good holiday and that your package arrived safely(?) For some bizarre reason, I tried to comment on your "Girls In Film" post, but the link would not work...so, I'm commenting about it here. This is such a wonderful post and thank you so much for sharing your research. I know a bit about Anita Loos and admire her very much, but had not heard of many of the other ladies. I also am a big fan of Taymor (though I have not yet seen her most recent film!). I agree with you completely that women are still underrepresented in the film industry and often not taken seriously in that field -- it is quite a shame that so many women have been intentionally forgotten or not given the credit they deserve as filmmakers, writers, and producers. I would also like to add Sofia Coppola and Jane Campion to the list of amazing female filmmakers!

  10. i was trying to leave a comment about the women IN film post and it wouldn't let me for some reason--but i just wanted to thank you--so much!--for posting that. it's scary the things we don't know. the memory and lives of women like that need to be recognized. thank you, thank you :)
