Little Red Bunch
Mao Zedong’s ideas were put together in a small red book, to one of the most widely spread books in the world. It was also waved at demonstrations in Finland in the 1960s and 1970s. Small and red was also a Maoist movement in the cold Finland. The film immerses in the thoughts and experiences of this enthusiastic crowd.
