Director: Peter von Bagh
"Peter von Bagh carves a forceful, fastmoving, often melancholic but frequently funny essay about cinema as the essence of the 20th century. " - Film Comment
Peter von Bagh is a filmmaker, film historian and director of the Midnight Sun Film Festival. Sodankylä Forever is von Bagh's tribute to the force and legacy of cinema, which see him assemble over 20 years of interviews with luminaries such as Milos Forman, Jacques Demy, Samuel Fuller, Michael Powell, Abbas Kiarostami and Monte Hellman. These legends of cinema talk about their influences, censorship and, of course, their love for film.
