" 'The Pine Tree' is a short video about finding homeland, documenting our exploration of Finland as a country to find any chance that it might be our new homeland.
How do humans transfer from country to country and how can they accept the idea of migration?
Can we leave our original homeland and find a substitute? Can we migrate to another place easily and leave all our memories?
Finland is not the suitable country for us and its just so beautiful from inside but it never shows the inner beauty easily with all these fences they are putting in the face of migrants and foreigners."
