A Shout—To Touch—The Silence is a quiet short film made of TV-archive material, propaganda films made after the wars between 1940–1970, that sought to teach Finnish people how a perfect family should work and how parents should nurture their children. The film is part of the Suomi Post Mortem project, short films commenting on Finland after the school massacres happened in 2007 and 2008.
