Pozdniakovas turns Sanskrit epic into 3D animation

Finnish director-editor-sometime actor Arturas Pozdniakovas has started production on the €8.7m The Legend of King Nal (Kuningas Nalin tarina), a 3D animated feature based on the Indian national epic, Mahabharata. The Finnish Film Foundation has chipped in €0.8m for the film, which will be completed in spring 2013.

Described as “a fantasy – a fairy tale movie for the whole family,” the Osmo Production is intended to introduce the 1.8 million-word Sanskrit classic to a large audience. Pozdniakovas begins his story when the reign of Dvapara, the benificent Lord of Time, ends. Bio Rex Cinemas will handle local distribution.

The Finnish Film Foundation will also cater half of the €0.8m budget for Jyri Kähönen’s feature debut, And the Night Comes (Ja saapuu oikea yö), produced by Aleksi Bardy’s Helsinki Filmi. Penned by Tuomas Parviainen, the family drama will shoot from August for an early 2012 premiere.

Samuli Valkama’s Love and Other Troubles received €0.7m towards a €1.5m budget. Produced by Bronson Club, and domestically released by Nordisk Film, the ”almost romantic comedy” will lens from July from a script by Katri Manninen and Valkama.
