From a land of long, dark winters comes “Steam of Life,” a moody, comic and moving study of Finnish men framed by the national obsession with the sauna.  There, they come together to sweat out not only the grime of contemporary life, but also their grief, hopes, joys and memories.  Beautifully and hauntingly shot, the acclaimed film provides a surprising glimpse into the lives of Finnish men and a remarkable depiction of the troubled and often reticent hearts of contemporary Western men.

The film is 60 minutes long with English subtitles and some nudity.
