Kimmo Pohjonen, Finland’s most vibrant and daring accordionist breaks the sound barrier in contemporary music film making. Extraordinary sounds of bellows, animals and machines come out of his instrument. Adding his own voice and string instruments, he bridges the gap between experimental, rock, folk and classic genres. The film is a journey of an exceptional artist grounded in basic human truths. Cinematography and drama reveal a distinctive Scandinavian viewpoint.
