Director Juha Lehtola’s new film The Human Part will premiere in the Official Selection Competition at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in November. The film, a comedy-drama inspired by acclaimed Kari Hotakainen’s novel by the same name, will have its theatrical release in Finland in December.
Started in 1997, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has grown into one of the biggest film festivals in Northern Europe, and is one of the so-called A-category of film festivals, alongside other 14 festivals in the world (including Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, San Sebastian, Shanghai, Tokyo etc).
Lehtola’s film comes from the dark country of Finland, where the money is gone, the family is torn apart, and thus a brilliant impostor is born, who will have to bring his family together and make it stronger than ever. Watch the trailer here.
