Timelapse Views: Arctic Winter In Finland (4K)

Filmed and Edited by: Riku Karjalainen

The Winter I Knew is a film about the harsh and yet so beautiful season, that is significantly changing due to climate change. As the Arctic environment is losing its defining features like snow and the cold, cold-adapted animal species are losing their natural habitat and we humans living in the Arctic are losing an essential part of who we are.

In my complementary film, The Winter I Knew – the Story, I share my journey making the main feature and my thoughts on this loss. Coming tomorrow, Monday 22.11.2021. Stay tuned!

Timelapse and video material from this film is available for licensing in 8K and 4K resolutions. Contact me for inquiries: riku@rikukarjalainen.com
