This month's presentation "Iris" is a Swedish Language film from Finnish director, Ulrika Bengts.
Stockholm,1890. Iris, funny and wise beyond her 8 years, is surrounded by decadent family friends with a love for the finer life. She anxiously prepares for an exciting trip to Paris for her artist mother’s exhibition. What she doesn’t know is that she isn’t going – her mother has important people to be with and she is not one of them. When her caretaker is unable to watch her, she finds herself shipped to The Aland Islands; where she learns to put the sophistication of urban life aside and conform to the barren archipelago life of those so familiar to her; unveiling the truth about her and her secreted past.
