Erik Blomberg


Erik Blomberg

The film director and screen writer Erik Blomberg started out as a trainee in 1934 in a lab run by the film company Suomi-Filmi. The next year he was already studying the art of lighting in London and Paris. By time he became a master of light and shadow in black&white films.

His most famous film is ”The White Reindeer” (1952), but he made his debut as a director already when working with a thriller produced by Risto Orko in 1936. Other milestones in Blomberg’s career are the films ”One man’s faith” (1940) and ”Kihlaus” (1955).

Blomberg was a true jack-of-all-trades within the film industry: he directed, edited, shot and produced films as well as wrote the script. He even acted as an actor in several films. All in all he participated, in one way or another, in over 250 short films and feature films.
