A Film by Antero Alli (filmmaker in person)

“Under a Shipwrecked Moon,” presents the classic mythic tale of a hero on a vision quest, but places it in a naturalistic setting where the fabulous and the visionary is seen as a part of everyday life. In doing so, he enables the viewer to build a bridge between the quotidian and the visionary,  the living and the dead". - David Finkelstein (4 stars, filmthreat)

Finkelstein's review in its entirety HERE.

Runtime: 
96 minutes

The power of a long-buried family secret becomes unleashed when the extreme rituals of a self-made shamanic punk rocker catapult him into the spirit realm in search of his father, a ship captain who drowned at sea. This ship captain's mother was a Finnish sorceress whose powers were passed onto her grandson, powers tested as he accidentally enters the dreams of his comatose Finnish grandfather.

Under a Shipwrecked Moon is a surrealistic fable of true love, giant hedgehogs, and the mystical depths of ancestry.
