POV | Steam of Life | Documentary Trailer | PBS

Duration: 01:53
Program: POV

In Finland, with its long, dark winters, the sauna is a national obsession whose benefits are as much emotional as physical. For the men in "Steam of Life", the sauna is a place to come together and sweat out not only the grime of contemporary life, but also their grief, hopes, joys and memories. Beautifully and hauntingly shot, this acclaimed film provides an extraordinary glimpse into the lives of Finnish men and into the depths of the human experience.
