Pride

Pride, a wonderful, euphoric emotion but at the same time something you don’t want to be public with?
The film Pride (30 min.)  is investigating this emotion through the stories of a few main-characters. Soroush Mehrabkhani came to Finland as a little boy and it was hard for him to integrate. Today he is proud to be able to tell the story about how he got out of this difficult situation. Other main-characters are Carita Liljendahl, who got over a traumatic divorce and Inga-Britt Qvarnström who is proud over her dad. The choir Out’n Loud makes a flashmob and Harriet Fagerholm tells us about her come-back after a burn-out. All main-characters are sharing stories about a deep emotion of pride over something they achieved or lived through in their lives.
