MOOMIN MEMORIES


Moomin, Tove Jansson’s charming, complex nature-creatures, are a Finnish fantasy treasure and an international success, adapted from her picture books into comic strips and Japanese animation. With access to the family archives and rare footage, this documentary celebrates their creator’s life and her creations’ enduring popularity, and coincides with the launch of a complete reprinting of her 1950s strips in book form by Drawn & Quarterly. The screening will be introduced by Tove Jansson’s niece, Sophia Jansson, in conversation with Comica Festival director Paul Gravett.

Dir: Charlotte Airas. Finland, 2005, 57 mins.

Where: Cinema 2, ICA, The Mall, London
