When spring slams birds on trees by Tuija Välipakka

Finnish poet Tuija Välipakka‘s words, translated by Pirjo Raila, appear as text on screen in this film by Tuija’s daughter Mikaela Välipakka. (There’s also a version in Swedish, I assume the original poem: När våren slungar fåglarna i träden.) The music is by Eemeli Sutalainen. The description at Vimeo reads:

Life is an endless stream where birth and death aren’t static. We exist before our birth and we live as long as even one remembers us.
