Johan (Juha), Mauritz Stiller, Sweden, 1921, 83 '

Live sound by Macarena Montesinos and Paulo Pascual (cello, theremin, acoustic and electric guitars).

Portrait of the arrival of an foreigner to a closed community and of the consequences caused by his presence in their new social environment. Adaptation of the literary work Juha, which was adapted by Aki Kaurismäki in 1999 and would be screened on 11/16/2019 at 19:00 in Tabakalera.

The two films that constitute the object of sounding of this double session are Johan (1921), by Mauritz Stiller, and Juha (1999), by Aki Kaurismäki, both adaptations of the novel Juha (1911), by the Finnish writer Juhani Aho. The original story of the novel tells the vicissitudes of the love triangle formed by Juha, a farmer, Marja, his wife, and Shemeikka, a businessman. Stiller and Kaurismäki's films raise a reflection on the marital commitment and conflict resulting from the differences between the rural lifestyle, represented by Juha and Marja, and the city lifestyle, represented by Shemeikka. The live sound of both films will not only be articulated as an approximation to the original story by Juhani Aho, but a dialogue with the images, structures, rhythms or narrative thread of the films can also be established, beyond this axis common theme.
