Jussi Award: Best Music (2017)
IFMCA Award: Best Original Score for a Documentary (2017)
Writer/director/producer Marko Röhr and editor/director Kim Saarniluoto return with another breathtaking overview of Finland's natural beauties. The film focuses on the world of rivers and the thousands of lakes of Finland with stories ranging from birds, fish and their spawn, to the lives of critically endangered seal pups. Featuring the narration of Samuli Edelmann and Jonathan Hutchings in the Finnish and English versions respectively, and Johanna Kurkela as the voice of the mystical water spirit, Ahitar, Tale of a Lake is as much of an emotional journey and breathtaking travelogue as its predecessor, Tale of A Forest, was.
