Cannes: LevelK Takes Finnish Doc Hit 'Tale of a Forest'

The lush look at the woodlands of Northern Finland has become the country's best-selling documentary.

Danish sales group LevelK has picked up world sales rights to Kim Saarniluoto and Ville Suhonen's hit Finnish nature documentary Tale of a Forest.

The lush look at the primeval forests of Northern Finland - some of Europe's sole remaining, old-growth forests - has become the most successful Finnish documentary of all time, grossing some $600,000 for distributor Nordisk in its tiny home territory.

LevelK will introduce the film to international buyers at the Cannes film market next month.
