Eija-Liisa Ahtila's films and cinematic installations experiment with storytelling creating extraordinary tales out of ordinary human experiences. These five films deal with separations, teenage girls' sexuality, relationships among family members, mental disintegration, and death. They investigate the processes of perception and the attribution of meaning, while the installations break down the story and divide it across the exhibition space. The stories are based on interviews and research, the results being transformed into material for the imagination during the scriptwriting process. Seemlessly incorporated into realistic settings using special cinematic techniques, these events give Ahtila's films their distinctive style.
