Episode 665: A Time of Roses (1969)

Episode 665: A Time of Roses (1969) Special Guest: Jyrki Siukonen
Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Eric J. Peterson

Directed by Risto Jarva, A Time of Roses (1969) is a low-grade science fiction film set in the distant year of 2012 where the government is a meritocracy. We focus in on Raimo Lappalainen (Arto Tuominen), a historian who wants to know what the world of 1969 was really like. He decides to recreate the past by creating a likeness of a woman who died in 1976 via her contemporary double, Kisse (Ritva Vepsä), to act as a substitute.

Samm Deighan and Eric J. Peterson join Mike to discuss this anomalous Finnish science fiction film while artist and author Jyrki Siukonen discusses his book Living in the Future – Revisiting Time of Roses.
