The new movie directed by Horacio Alcalá releases the 4th of October, 2021. Finlandia belongs to the genre of magical realism. In my opinion, it has some elements consistent with documentaries related to its genre. It focuses on the muxhe community, a group of Zapotec people who identify as a third-gender, and the journey of Marta, a young designer, who comes to the region of Oaxaca in order to copy local clothing traditions and styles and bring them back to Europe.The movie has some realistic elements that are related to its setting mostly.

Finlandia gives us an upclose insight into the process of creation and production of their designs, which are mostly made by the muxhes themselves.The cinematic techniques based in magical realism used in Finlandia urge us to dream.

Slow motion is used in a very powerful scene of a dinner between the European which represent
