Going to Beyond

Going to Beyond

directed by:

Kalli Paakspuu

"Going to Beyond" is based on the song, "Üle Toonela tumeda vee" (“Over the Dark Waters to Toone”) and is about going to the land of the dead in the Finno-Ugric mythology. Sung by singers that were recent refugees in Toronto and conducted by Maestro Roman Toi in 1954, this film is a creative treatment of the emotional story of leaving everything that is known; It tells the singers' story of despair and renewal.
