Who is Anders Banke?
Anders Banke is a Swedish director. He was born and raised in Ystad and developed an early interest in film. He was trained as a director at VGIK in Moscow and learned to speak Russian. There he meet his friend and future collaborator Chris Maris. In 1998 he came across a horror comedy script written by Daniel Ojanlatva about a town north of the arctic circle being terrorized by vampires. Banke loved the idea and spent several years developing it with Ojanlatva. Since the Swedish Filminsitute don't often approve of horror films or genre movies in general, Banke had a hard time pulling the film off. In the end, he managed to get funding from the Swedish Filminsitute needed to attract other producers to the project in 2004 and production could begin. The film was Sweden's first vampire film.
