Finnish artists throughout time have described the nature of Finland as mystical and untouchable. Within these national landscapes rests both eyes and the soul. <p>Finnish artists throughout time have described the nature of Finland as mystical and untouchable.

<p>In the essay-film A Nature Documentary by Joel Karppanen, seasons change and years go by, while bears roam in the woods and nature photographers wait inside their hiding stalls. At the same time, the landscapes are distorted and resided; the nature of imagination is locked in cages, stuffed in museums and chopped down of trees. Also, the idea of nature imagery has been questioned by the real, original nature. How do one know if original nature ever existed?</p>
<p></p>
<p>The thesis in A Nature Documentary is self-critical and sad also. Native animal populations are being displaced by virtual populations. The soaring of a gallant bird of prey is bounded in the screen of an empty movie theatre. Is it eventually impossible to describe nature in any other way?</p>
