Eastern Memories is an epic road movie and unexpected Odyssey into the Far East of Mongolia and Japan. Seamlessly intertwining past and present, it takes us on a visually stunning journey of adventure and exploration, love and death, conspiracies and the fall of nations. It is also the story of Finnish linguist and diplomat G. J. Ramstedt’s travels into the old world of beliefs and traditions of the late 19th century, a world that no longer exists today, replaced by ideologies and market economy.


We are delighted that filmmakers Niklas Kullström and Martti Kaartinen will attend the screenings for a Q&A with the audience.
