Elegance

Finland | 2015 | documentary | 26 min. Focus on Finland

Accompanied by pure-breed Setters, they walk proud through fields holding expensive air guns. In the afternoon, a group of older, elegant and wealthy men devote themselves to their greatest passion - hunting. Associated rather with the British upper classes, this form of entertainment is an excellent excuse for Finns to meet and an important component of their identity, too.
