📣 Hot off the press! The second edition of Unelmatehdas Liisankadulla – Suomen Filmiteollisuus Oy:n tarina is out now. 📚 Edited by Kimmo Laine, Minna Santakari, Juha Seitajärvi and Outi Hupaniittu, the book tells of the rise and fall of Suomen Filmiteollisuus (SF), Finland’s biggest film production company. I had the honour of contributing two articles for the book. One is about SF’s acting school and the development of the star system in 1930s and 1940s Finland. In addition, I wrote a case study of film stardom and cultural appropriation in 1950s Finland. The article focuses on Assi Nortia (1925-1989), a white actress whose screen image was built on playing poc characters.
