COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Hypnose et paranoïa de la guerre froide dans le Nord... L'histoire de l'hypnotiseur finlandais Olavi Hakasalo, alias Olliver Hawk, le Raspoutine de Finlande, mythomane compulsif.

What do Finland's most famous hypnotist and the longest-serving president in the country have in common? During the Cold War, Olliver Hawk charmed the nation with his hypnosis shows while proselytizing on the power of suggestion. At the same time, Urho Kekkonen governed the country, occupying the presidency without opposition and counting on the citizens’ unconditional support...
A fascinating story about the links between political power, psychological manipulation, and the media. In the midst of the fake news era, the incredible life of Olliver Hawk teaches us to question images and reminds us of the need to contrast information. What if politicians manipulate the masses using hypnosis techniques? Where do the truth end and the lie begin? Unfairly accused or blacklisted for political reasons, Hawk tasted success and failure in equal measure. For some he was a genius and for others he was a fraud. His death left many unanswered questions, even for his closest relatives and co-workers, which remain a mystery to this day. The myth is still alive and more mysterious than ever.
