" I need to get to the space"

Being a cosmonaut is a demanding task.
When you are not granted a new launching pad - the task becomes nearly impossible.

Director Biography - Jukka- Pekka Jalovaara

I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki, Finland in 1997 – sculpture as main interest. It consisted of four years of very classical approach to the art – sculpting and drawing live model mainly.I now consider that simplified method as the greatest ability to deepen one’s perception on arts of any kind.That is persistent concentration on the subject.

After school for 3-4 years I went through a drawingproject to study more improvisationary aspect of doing art. As being a very thorough person that produced more than a thousand pieces of drawings.
After a long period of depression, five years and during which I couldn’t make any artistic efforts whatsoever, I fell into photographing. At the moment, photographing has emerged to a moving phase - to a journey through short films.

Director Statement

“For me there is no such a thing called still-image. Whenever you see an image again, it’s different – and that’s nice. From this point of view it was very easy to jump
to the train of cinematography.
During a very hollow slice of time you think nothing moves, but it’s only imagination.”
If something is moved inside you – it’s art. You only don’t know what was it, that moved you, exactly. That’s magic.
