Filmed in the Lapland region of Finland, The Great Shawl of Aamu is a children’s film bringing together fairy tales and documentary, live footage and animation.
“Open wide your heart and ears” said Niilo to Aamu, as he left her on the river bank… This is excellent advice given to Aamu, a little girl on a quest to see the world. “What is the world made of?” wonders the little girl… “Are there monsters, witches, ogres and sorceresses?”
In fact, her path leads her to those living simply and in harmony with nature, all wizards in their own way. Under the benevolent gaze of her grandmother the little girl matures as she comes in contact with these characters, each one with their own delightful life lesson to offer.
A soothing film about the beauty of the world.
