Escape from Moomin Valley

Fånge i Mumindalen

Escape from Moomin Valley delves into Jansson’s life outside of the Moomins, portraying her early years and her search for an artistic identity in Europe between the two World Wars. With her multifaceted life’s work, Jansson became one of the key artists in Finnish visual art during the post-war golden age of Modernism. Although it was the Moomin books that brought Jansson worldwide fame and adoration, her career as a painter was sidelined. What happens to a person when she becomes world-renowned but not for the thing that is closest to her heart?
