NLFF: The Hypnotist

Finland | 2019 | 73 minutes | Arthur Franck

February 29, 2020

In 1980, Finland's most famous hypnotist Olavi Hakasalo, a.k.a Olliver Hawk, was put on trial accused of fraud. His mission in life had been to spread the gospel of the power of suggestion, and he was willing to risk everything to become a player of political influence. But in the corridors of power, with a nation's destiny at stake, an eccentric showman sitting on too many secrets is considered a liability.

Director Arthur Franck will be in attendance
