Girl Picture | Alli Haapasalo Sundance 2022 Interview [Exclusive]

Girl Picture directed by Alli Haapasalo

Alli Haapasalo wanted to make a coming-of-age story of a group of young women. In Girl Picture, the film follows three different women as they navigate the idea of responsibilities and relationships in the drama.

Here is the Sundance Film Festival description:

Best friends Mimmi and Rönkkö work after school at a food court smoothie kiosk, frankly swapping stories of their frustrations and expectations regarding love and sex. Volatile misfit Mimmi, unexpectedly swept up in the thrill of a new romance with Emma (a driven skater training for the European championships), struggles to adjust to the trust and compromise required by a lasting relationship. Meanwhile, the offbeat, indefatigable Rönkkö hits the teen party scene, stumbling through a series of awkward encounters with members of the opposite sex while hoping to find her own version of satisfaction.

The film stars Aamu Milonoff, Eleonoora Kauhanen, and Linnea Leino.
