Tale of a Lake creates a cinematic poem about Finland’s natural waters. The script invokes tales based around the myths, legends and old beliefs recorded in Finnish mythology. Antti Tuuri, the popular author of Finnish historical novels, co-wrote the script accompanying this film about Finland’s thousands of lakes. Taking viewers on an unprecedented adventure, ranging from crystal-clear springs to the basins of the big lakes, the film opens a whole new world of underwater nature for the viewers.

This major Jewish festival lasts eight days and commemorates the liberation of the Children of Israel and their Exodus from slavery in Egypt. The highlight is the Seder meal, held in each family’s home at the beginning of the festival, when the story of their deliverance is recounted, as narrated in the Haggadah (the Telling, or the Story). Matzah , (unleavened bread) is eaten throughout the festival, as are other foods that contain no leaven (yeast). There is a major spring cleaning in the home shortly before the festival to ensure that no trace of leaven is left in the house during Pesach. Coconut pyramids and matza balls (which are put in soups) are foods that might be eaten at this time.
