Väylä

Oil Blue
by Elli Rintala Documentary Finlandia/Finland 2008 25'

The majestic calm of the sea set side by side with man's often invasive intervention. In VÁ¤ylÁ¤, Rintala's final year film, she rides the oil tanker Mastera on its route across the Baltic Sea: on board is the busy crew, surrounding them are the waves and silence, as the ship heads towards a refinery where its precious yet dangerous cargo will be unloaded. The relationship between man and the sea told in a slowly advancing narrative, with poetic, visually intense images representing the ambivalence between admiration"”the spectacular, evocative camera shots"”and recognition of the exploitation and pollution that the ship symbolizes.
