Hanneriina Moisseinen: Kannas

Set in summer 1944 on the Karelian isthmus, »Kannas« follows the story of the young cowherder Maria as she meets a deserter while bombs explode around her. He has fled from the front. Hanneriina Moisseinen supple – ments her atmospheric pencil drawings with archival photographs and tells of the horrors of the time, but also of mutual care and the survival of man and beast during the war. »A masterpiece of Finnish comic art.« (Helsingin Sanomat)

Hosted by Lilian Pithan.
