Director and Producer: Jan IJÄS (Finland)

“Waste no. 2 Wreck” was filmed in 2014 and 2015 on the island of Lampedusa, in the graveyard of the refugees’ boats. Here the discarded flotsam and jetsam, the smashed boats, become symbols of our society – and thus desirable icons, their value increasing daily.

Born in 1975 in Finland, the multimedia artist and film-maker Jan IJÄS lives and works in Helsinki. He makes documentary films, drama films and experimental films which look at difficult issues in our society, such as migration into foreign, hostile societies. His films have been widely shown abroad in festivals, museums and art galleries.
