STFFF Hobbyhorse Revolution3rd August, 2018
A feel-good look at the obsessions and delights of Finnish teenage girls immersed in the competitive world of the hobbyhorse.
Oscar-nominated director Selma Vilhunen’s film explores the curious sub-culture of quasi-equestrian dressage with warmth and humour. Struggling at home and at school, the three teenage protagonists turn to the hobbyhorse world to find self-expression and joy. We are drawn into this culture where, free of judgement, young girls have created an imaginative and surprisingly athletic sport that is utterly their own.
