Pahan kukat (dir. Antti J. Jokinen) opened two weeks ago in Finnish cinemas. Premiere night was as fantastic as I was hoped for. Dear cast and crew, friends and lot of new acquaintances. This marked for me the first feature film, so I guess it’s natural to be a bit enthusiastic. Here on my right in the photo below is film’s sound recrodist Olger Bernadt. Photo by Oskari Sarjakoski.
Flowers of Evil (Pahan kukat) is among 14 feature films competing the Golden Goblet award at the 19th Shanghai International Film Festival in June. Last year over 2000 films were submitted and only fifteen of them were selected to the main competition. SIFF is one of the biggest A-listed film festivals in the world and the biggest one in Asia, so this is really great news for us! Check out the trailer.

January was one of the busiest months for me after wrapping the feature “Pahan kukat” in October. I shot a bunch of commercials for brands such as McDonald’s and Anttila among few others. I was happy to work for the first time with director Taneli Mustonen and production company Directors Guild. I also continued our collaboration with director Teemu Niukkanen and Rane Tiukkanen. I’ll be posting new works after they’ve been published!
