BIOGRAPHY – SAKARI MALINIEMI

Finnish Sakari Maliniemi has a small production company and he has been operating in Finland, Inari in recent years. His passion lies in working with actors and he believes that great performance starts with a great script.

Film is a great tool for identification and empathy but it needs the viewer’s trust to work. It builds on the belief of the imaginary a bit like a magic show. Sakari has always been interested in building this trust, which can break at any moment.

From scriptwriting he would like to teach to believe in oneself and own observation of the world. There are many interesting things to discover from that!
