Red Heritage is a documentary about The Finnish Civil War in 1918 and it’s influence on contemporary Finland from the perspective of one family. The film tells the story of the artist Carl Sebastian Lindberg’s great-grandfather Antti Meritähti who fought for the Red Guards, as told by Lindberg’s relatives and through information from different archives. The fact that Lindberg’s great- grandfather fought for the Red Guards that lost the war is still a taboo in the family, and one of the interviewed, the artist’s uncle, is not willing to show his face in the film, we only see his hands.The video is in Swedish with English subtitles. The work was produced by Stiftelsen Pro Artibus. The exhibithion is supported by Visek and Nylands Nations Kulturfond.
