The Finnish movie Compartment No. 6 directed by Juho Kuosmanen is screened by The Polarise Nordic Film Nights on 20th of January, 19h00 and 19h10, at Cinema Galeries. The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux is more than happy to support the event. The film has gained extensive attention and is also running for the Oscars 2022! 

The film is about a young Finnish woman who escapes a love affair by boarding a train to the arctic port of Murmansk. Forced to share the long ride and a tiny sleeping car with a Russian miner, the unexpected encounter leads them to face the truth about their own yearning for human connection. A modern road story, only, in a train. 

Polarise is a team of film enthusiasts set on bringing a fresh breeze of Nordic cinema to Brussels screens.
