Alma Poysti has acted in her native Finland for two decades, first in the theatre and later on the screen. After voicing a role in the French-Finnish animated film Moomins on the Riviera (2014), she played the title role of Tove Jansson in the 2020 biopic Tove (2020). Her work in Aki Kaurismäki’s Fallen leaves gave her a Golden Globe nomination. She can also be seen right now in Four Little Adults.
This is the third time Alma hosts Helsinki Lit.
