Finnish filmindustry was facing many challenges after the studio period and new wave had passed in the 1970s. The resources were scarce, film crews small and the films were not gaining wider recognition.

PERFOROITUA SELKÄNAHKAA -Perforated hide - exhibition takes the viewer behind the scenes and presents photographs that show the amount of work, passion and love that the magic of film-making is made of.

These photographs have been collected from the archives of long term film-makers Pekka Aine(b.1948), Eki Peltomaa (b.1945) and Hannu Peltomaa (b.1941). We get to see behind the scenes of productions by Risto Jarva and Rauni Mollberg.
