In the Twilight of White Nights

June 16 - June 28, 2017

Pera Film is inviting you to the longest days and white nights! The summer solstice is approaching and the number of minutes of daylight is rapidly increasing. The program In the Twilight of White Nights, a selection of Nordic summer films, gets its name from the lyrics by Nordic pop-star Oh Land. The sun almost never sets in these films. Bright summer nights bring unending summer parties, but at times insomnia and depression tag along. Long summer days can create new beginnings for people; families come together, teenagers fall in love and nature can take over!

Come join us and let’s experience the sun of Nordic cinema together!
