    Sci-fi

    Aimo and Milla are living together at Milla’s alcoholics-turned-into-zombies parents’ place. They dream about their first own home. They save money and manage to move out from the zombie-house. Due to his lack of self-confidence, Aimo uses their savings to turbo-boost his muscles and tunes himself up into a robot. Milla doesn’t like what Aimo is doing and leaves him. Aimo‘s heart ache leads him to extreme measures: he changes his heart for one made of metal, because a heart of metal will not feel pain. Milla decides to steal back Aimo’s heart – a man has to have a man’s heart, after all

    Most of my movies have started from a need to explore something that interests or bothers me. Usually, it turns into a dark comedy with a heart. As a genre film lover, I try to keep the audience on their toes. You'll never know what happens next.

    Teemu Nikki (born in 1975) is a prolific self-educated, award-winning filmmaker and son of a pig-farmer from Sysmä, Finland. His feature, EUTHANIZER (2018), was a festival success and Finland’s official Oscar entry film for The Academy Awards in 2019. Nikki has also directed numerous short films which have gained recognition at film festivals all around the world and popular TV series. Nikki’s style is best described as a good-willed yet unapologetic political satire of humanity. He owns a production company It’s Alive Films together with producer Jani Pösö. His latest film is THE BLIND MAN WHO DID NOT WANT TO SEE TITANIC (2021), selected and awarded at Venice IFF.
