Pete Riski

Ironically for a man with his name, Finnish director Pete Riski is an extremely safe pair of hands. One of his most obvious assets is a talent for the integration of great performances and brilliant photography.

Given the gentle nature of much of his work, it's surprising to learn that he cut his teeth making horror movies and once directed a feature film starring the heavy rock band Lordi - who famously had half of Europe cowering behind their sofas when they unexpectedly won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006.

WORK:
UNICEF
"Gifts of Tomorrow"
This affecting film for UNICEF opens on a normal Christmas scene as a family gathers around the tree to exchange gifts. Then, without notice, their lives are turned upside down as they're forced to flee the desolation of the war. When you consider that the Ukrainian people were gathering around their Christmas trees in 2021, oblivious to the terrible trauma that lay ahead, it's a stark reminder of how fragile the peace we take for granted can be.
