In the year 2000, Helsinki was named one of Europe’s “Cities of Culture”. In celebration of this distinction, a series of short films were produced to capture the essence of the city and its people. Set in the last wood-heated public sauna in Helsinki, Cupping at the Kotiharju Sauna follows a middle-aged citizen as he undergoes a seemingly archaic, yet fully contemporary Finnish ritual – a sauna, flogging and bloodletting.
