Rosa Honkonen will be coming to the film festival and after the movie showing on the 9th of February there will be a Q&A with Rosa. We asked her some questions in advance about what she is looking forward to at Finn Filmnapok and with visiting Budapest. 

What kind of feelings do you have about attending Finn Filmnapok and what are you most looking forward to in your visit to Budapest?

I have good feelings about coming to Filmnapok and to Budapest for the first time. Besides experiencing a new city I am looking forward to seeing how the audience reacts to Stupid, Young Heart. 

What was it like making Stupid, Young Heart? 

Making the movie was an intensive process, which happened in two parts during fall 2017. First part of shooting was in September and the second one in November. Eventhough it was quite busy during the days of filming there was a good atmosphere on set thanks to the amazing crew. 

Is there anything else you want to tell the audience?  

If I could go back in time, I would like to experience every single day of shooting again.
