Eija-Liisa Ahtilas works combine the skills of a visual artist and filmmaker in a unique way. At the general human level, Ahtila´s ability to find the core of tails with her psychologically accurate intuition creates touching episodes, for which cinematographic and spatial narrative provide multi-layered forms available to various interpretations. -Tuula Karjalainen-
