‘The Midwife’ Interview with Director Antti J. Jokinen

Little known to most Americans, the Lapland War put Finland between the barrels and
bombs of the Nazis and the Soviets at the end of World War II. This meticulously researched
feature tells the tale of a brave midwife who voluntarily became a concentration camp nurse
to get closer to a German soldier she desired. It’s a powerful love story, but also an
enthralling lens into a forgotten era of history.
