Murder Chairs conquer the world

“The Murder Chairs” is an experimental film made by Nalle Mielonen in 2010. This spring it can be seen in international festivals.

“The Murder Chairs” tells seven stories about chairs. Trough these stories we see a portrait of hidden and public violence and the effects it has on the places where it occurs. The film was shot and finished in the spring 2010. The Crew was very small, but many fellow students and friends helped by lending their chairs for the movie.

The film is written, directed and cinematographed by Nalle, edited by Nina Forsman and the sound design was made by Jussi Sandhu. Other vital members of the crew were Laura Rytkönen (set design, co-producer), Kerttu Hakkarainen (camera assistant, gaffer) and Hannu Käki (camera assistant, electirician).

The international premier of The Murder Chairs was at the Mexican student film festival Kinoki, where the film competed in the experimental short film section. Next Murder Chairs can be seen in Germany, first at the European Media Art Festival at Osnabrück and in the beginning of June in EMERGEANDSEE media art festival at Berlin.
