Latvia’s Official entry for the Academy Awards Gulf Stream Under The Iceberg will have its North American premiere this month at the Scandinavian Film Festival of Los Angeles - www.SSFLA.net.

The SFFLA is leading the industry by extending its program to include its Baltic neighbors from Latvia and Lithuania. Ahead of the curve, the 14 year old festival has carved out a loyal and dedicated audience during the last lobbying weeks of a busy award season over the two weekends in January 12&13 and 19&20 at the Writer’s Guild in Beverly Hills.

“Northern European countries have often taken to the seas with a cargo of culture, commerce and collaboration,” says festival founder/director James Koenig.  “We have an exciting program that follows old routes to new worlds and now we are journeying around to our Baltic neighborhood where cultural cross-currents have been a reality since even before Hanseatic ‘happenings’!”

This year the program will begin with Yevgeny Pashkevich’s mythical fairy tale Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg, a kaleidoscopic and hypnotic affair inspired by the works of Anatole France and influenced by Talmud and the medieval books of Cabala.  It is the self-absorbing story about Adam´s first wife, Lilith – how humanity tries to run away from Eden and strives to become sinless, yet ultimately ends up trapped in its own unconsciousness.A

Written & Directed by Yevgeny Pahskevich, Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg is produced by Yevgeny Pashkevich, Natalia Ivanova and stars Olga Shepitskaya, Ville Haapasalo, Danila Kozlovsky, Liubomiras Lauciavicius, and Yuriy Tsurilo.  Executive producers are Kristians Luhaers, Antra Cilinska and Maria Ksinopulo.  Wide Management is handling worldwide sales.

SFFLA 2013 will continue its strong line-up of showcasing Scandinavian films - premiering features, documentaries, shorts from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and which will include this year’s Academy’s short-list of Foreign Language films from Iceland Baltasar Kormakur’s The Deep, and Norway’s Golden Globe nominee Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg’s KON-TIKI; with Sweden’s Nikolaj Arcel’s A Royal Affair closing the festival.   Other Academy submissions include Finland’s entry Antti Joinen’s Purge, Latvia’s Yevgeny Pashkevich’s Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg and Lithuania’s Loss from Maris Martinsons.

The shorts program will also include two Academy short-listed films: Anders Walter’s 9 Meter (Denmark) and Goran Kapetanovic’s Kiruna-Kigali (Sweden)
