April 16 - 18, 2021

Helsinki Cine Aasia presents French director Jessé Miceli’s Coalesce. The movie was awarded with the Acid price during last Cannes festival.


Phnom Penh, the fast changing capital of Cambodia, is the location for the stories of three different young men. Songsa ends up selling clothes on the streets from a tuk-tuk, leaving the safety of his countryside home behind. Thy looks for opportunities to make his dreams come true, while Phearum wants to improve the life of his young family. The French director Jessé Miceli, working with a local crew, presents views into the early stages of the rapid urbanization of the nation and its people. Languid moments give the film breath.
