Description

The power of a long-dead family secret is unleashed when the rituals of a self-made shamanic punk rocker catapult him into the spirit realm in search of his father, a ship's captain who drowned at sea. Meanwhile, back in the real world, he and his family gather around the bedside of his comatose Finnish grandfather who has suddenly reappeared after a fifteen year absence. A surrealistic fable of true love, giant hedgehogs, and the mystical depths of family bonds.

Editorial Reviews

In "Under a Shipwrecked Moon," filmmaker Antero Alli presents the classic mythic tale of a hero on a vision quest, but places it in a naturalistic setting where the fabulous and the visionary is seen as a part of everyday life. In doing so, he enables the viewer to build a bridge between the quotidian and the visionary, the living and the dead.
