More about Aku Louhimies

Directors note of Frozen City
"With low production costs we were able to create a creative freedom to make a film that would have been hard to finance otherwise. Shot entirely on location in Helsinki Finland. The Police and the guards are all non-professionals in acting, performing their real duties.
Improvisation is used trough the whole script especially in the scenes including children.
This film is very personal for all of us.
No animals were harmed."
