Event Description

This Finnish documentary tells the story of two different sets of entrepreneurs: one is a family-run business that goes from one village to another running a carnival and selling meat from a small truck. The other is a pair of two well-educated women from the capital area who have invented a vegetable protein product called Pulled Oat, and have become millionaires. The film focuses on their dreams, integrity, and ability to sustain their dignity even amidst hardships. In Finnish, Chinese and English with English subtitles. Runtime 1 hour, 14 minutes. This film is part of the Global Film Series, co-presented by the NC State Office of Global Engagement and the NC State University Libraries, and sponsored by NC State Entrepreneurship.
