Into noise is an experimental documentary film on the soundscape of New York, and a personal story of alienation and disruption. This abstract symphony of urban and natural imagery exposes the layered sounds of the city through poetic, frantic imagery and a minimalistic industrial soundtrack. The film follows the filmmaker in her attempts to cope with urban noise in New York, taking the audience on a journey leading finally back to her distant homeland. Challenging the way we hear our every day lives, the film delves into a universal "sehnsucht", searching for a sense of harmony and belonging. The film features a rich backdrop of the city that never sleeps, and was filmed in multiple New York and Brooklyn locations, as well as in Finland.
