The Tall Man is a documentary film about the tallest man in Europe and a live-size dummy that portrays him and continues his legacy. Väinö Myllyrinne (1909-1963) was an ordinary Finnish man who grew to be 250 cm tall. The film shows Väinö´s life through archive material and portrays a day of the dummy posing in a supermarket. Can anything and anyone be materialized and brought up to become part of our collective memory?
