Hobbyhorse Revolution Keppihevosten vallankumous

Selma Vilhunen / Finland / 2017 / 90 min / English Subtitles, Slovene subtitles, Finnish / 10+

“Respect to the hobbyhorses!”

Never stop doing what you love: A funny and moving documentary about teenagers who discover their own voice and talent through riding and making hobbyhorses, a widely popular subculture in Finland. Many young women and girls demonstrate in this film that hobbyhorsing is not a children’s game but a means to recharge one’s batteries, gain recognition and experience the feeling of belonging. 

reviews
“Warm and funny, Vilhunen presents a thoughtful and non-judgmental look at the Finnish hobbyhorse community in her documentary. A compelling film on the phenomenon, Hobbyhorse Revolution celebrates its subject matter with enthusiasm, resulting in a doc which is both deeply moving and endlessly amusing.”
- Chelsea Phillips-Carr, Point of View Magazine

“The film has the tension and triumphant energy of a great sports picture. You'll stand, you'll cheer, you'll wonder what to name your horse.”
- Norman Wilner, Now

A film about the first Laibach album officially released in Yugoslavia. The record came out despite the political ban that was in place on the band’s name at the time, in 1985 – but without the name or a title. A black cross on the cover was enough.
