Finnish film director Aki Kaurismäki plans to direct a trilogy of feature films about life in harbour cities, the first part of which was the recently premiered and well-received Le Havre. Le Havre is a story about today’s immigration situation in Europe.
The film won the International Critics’ Prize at Cannes in May of this year and has been put forward as the Finnish nominee for the Oscars.
Kaurismäki intends to make a follow-up set in Spain, the film director says in an interview with the Finnish movie magazine Filmihullu.
The third part of the trilogy will be shot in Germany, Kaurismäki plans.
