Baltic Sea

The new documentary at Heureka’s planetarium dives into the fascinating world of the Baltic Sea.

The world’s youngest sea is the star of the new documentary at Heureka’s planetarium. The Baltic Sea takes a dip into the worlds of many forms of life in the Baltic, from plankton and algae to seals. The film takes us to places we would not otherwise be able to see. It provides a fascinating look at things that are invisible to the naked eye. The Baltic Sea was directed by Hannes Vartiainen and Pekka Veikkolainen, whose earlier documentary films have received numerous awards both in Finland and abroad. The film uses three-dimensional x-ray tomography, which allows us to examine the organisms of the sea at a microscopic level.

The Baltic Sea was produced by Leading Note Pictures Oy in co-operation with the Finnish Science Centre Heureka. In addition to Heureka, the documentary project was funded by Sitra, the Finnish Film Foundation, AVEK and the Committee for Public Information.
