Peacemaker – Screening and Talk
Explosive Political Drama
‘Peacemaker’ is an internationally-driven political drama headlined by a strong female protagonist played by Irina Björklund (‘Bordertown’). Set across Turkey, Syria, and Spain, the 10-part series centers on Ann-Mari, a peacemaker who struggles to defuse an escalating conflict between the Kurds and the Turks and unexpectedly sparks a scandal by revealing a Finnish state-owned company’s involvement in the arms trade.
‘Peacemaker’ is the latest example of Finnish broadcaster Yle’s strategy to ramp up its high-end international productions.
The Finnish series was created by Eriikka Etholén-Paju and directed by AJ Annila. It was produced by Johanna Enäsuo and Marko Röhr for the Finnish banner MRP Matila Röhr Productions for YLE.
