Roope Olenius’ feature is written by lead actress Veera W. Vilo, who stars as a promising figure skater fleeing from Russia to Finland to escape her inhumane circumstances. The film is based on Vilo’s own experiences as a gymnast, her colleagues’ experiences, and disturbing stories of female athletes and dancers that have come to light after the start of the #MeToo movement. After its theatrical release, Free Skate will be available on a number of digital and cable platforms in North America, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, iNDemand and DISH, starting February 28, 2023.
