Maria’s Paradise

Synopsis

In this riveting drama based on a scandal that rocked Finland in the 1920s, orphaned teen Salome is held in thrall by Maria Åkerblom, a charismatic cult leader who claims that God speaks to her. Only when Salome finally ventures outside of the Helsinki estate where Maria lives with her followers does the young girl question the teachings she’s been raised to hold true. Acclaimed filmmaker Bergroth (Miami) fashions a fascinating, complex portrait of the nature of belief and the need to belong.

“An intriguing, well-heeled period drama…”
