The Colour of Spring
Directed by Paul Andrew Kimball
Canada, 94 mins
To their friends, Sarah and Sam seem like the perfect couple desperately in love. But when Sarah gets her big stage break as an aspiring actress, Sam begins to question whether he’s good enough for her, particularly as he’s stuck in a dead-end job.
As their relationship unravels, and a mysterious woman threatens to further tear them apart, Sarah and Sam are forced to confront the anger and hurt that they have built between themselves, and once again believe in each other and their love in order to find their way “home”.
Directed by Panu Suuronen

JENNI (21) is a vibrant butterfly, however she has a shadow that prevents her from living her life to the fullest. The only thing stopping her is ”no-life loser” flatmate TONY (47). They are both unhappy, living like an old couple that doesn’t have the good sense to get divorced. What makes their situation intolerable is that Jenni and Tony are actually the same person.
The struggle started when Jenni came out of the closet as a transgender person seven years ago. Alternating between genders is getting more exhausting every day. Jenni has to kill Tony. Suddenly Jenni finds another woman living in her rabbit hole. Heta, a friend from work, enters her life bringing rather dominant vibes to Jenni’s new emancipated self which leads to an erratic new direction in her life.
Will Jenni succeed in killing Tony, or will she die trying?
