Hobbyhorse Revolution
Finnish documentary, 2016

Aisku, Elsa and Alisa come from very different families. They are teenage girls who are passionate about hobbyhorses, traditionally a toy for much younger children. With other girls they form a tight community that is brimming with imagination and strong emotions. The majority of hobbyhorse youth have had to encounter bullying, but many of them have found a way to deal with problems and find support in their hobbyhorse -community. Through these girls and their friends we learn about a very special phenomenon; a kick ass subculture with a punk rocking attitude. Hobbyhorse Revolution is a funny and touching adventure between a child’s imagination and the reality of growing up. The film questions; when does one become too old to play? The high quality documentary material and videos shot by the teenagers, draw a picture of a subculture that resists categorisation and of young people who bravely choose a lifestyle they can call their own.
