Think you have SISU?

Think you have sisu? This inspiring Finnish American film sure does

In his nonprofit documentary “SISU: Family, Love & Perseverance from Finland to America”, Finnish-American filmmaker Marko Albrecht explores the meaning of the Finnish word sisu through a tragic lens. Revolving around Marko’s family and a series of heartbreaking events, the film delves into life, death, family, and of course, the sisu that helps them get through it. Taking place in both Finland and the United States, the film recounts the ups and downs from his family’s history that we all experience at various points in our lives, from the simple joy of a well-heated sauna to the harrowing loss of a much-loved family member.
