Finnair and Helsinki Airport have been connecting east and west for 35 years and to celebrate this occasion, they have produced East and West Side Story, a unique short film. The short brings these two worlds together in a unique and interesting way – instead of having one director, the film had two –one from the East and one from the West.
Each director gave their perspective on the same story.
East and West Side Story: S.P. Novak is a famous American writer with a little secret: no one knows who she is. She is about to get her portrait taken for the first time by a talented photographer from Seoul. But things don’t go as planned…
East and West Side Story is an experimental short film about encounters that only become meaningful once you take a closer look.
Presented by Finnair and Helsinki Airport and directed by Johan Storm & Wookie, East and West Side Story is an experimental short film about encounters that only become meaningful once you take a closer look.
