Synopsis: 

Three young women from different parts of Finland all have blogs where they share a specific part of their lives. Becoming me follows those young women and is an intimate journey into their inner world. Behind the screen they drift between their own thoughts and feelings and the expectations of the outside world. From alienation towards the slow process of accepting yourself, the film encourages us to reach out for others and try to find the lost feeling of belonging.

 

Additional screening: 22/03 - 2.00 pm - Cinema Aventure (Room 2)
