// the film //
There is a soundtrack to your soul. The melody and lyrics that you have never forgotten. It’s the music of your childhood, when you felt free, loved and maybe had your first kiss at a school disco. That music moves you and evokes the deep emotions in you.
For our generation, who were kids in the 90’s, that music is the 90’s dance music, known as Eurodance. Artists such as Haddaway and Dr. Alban will always have a special place in our hearts.
Never-ending Dream tells the stories of people from different corners of the world that have one thing in common: they all grew up in the 90‘s and have experienced the turbulence of our recent history.
The film will portrait amazing stories and people that you will fall in love with, as well as introducing you to the never-aging stars of the 90’s.
Baby, it’s a Eurodance movie.
Never-ending Dream ran a crowdfunding campaign in Finland in the spring of 2015, and now, encouraged by the success, we are ready to do an international campaign on Indiegogo. This is a film that we want to share with people all over the world, and to make this film happen, we need your support! We already have a sales company onboard, that is working hard to have global distribution for Never-ending Dream.
“Luukkainen is a good example of the kind of untapped talent from all around the world just waiting to burst onto the big screen.”-The Hollywood News ( March, 2014 )
Petri Luukkainen (born 1984) is a filmmaker from Helsinki. Petri started his career at the age of 17 by directing TV commercials. His first feature length documentary MY STUFF (TAVARATAIVAS, 2013) is a human experiment driven comedy. MY STUFF has been theatrically released around the world (eg. UK, Germany, Japan, Spain, Finland).
“When I was a kid in the 90s, I loved two things. Films and eurodance music. Now I’m 31 years old and I’ve become a director. And I still love films and 90’s eurodance music. So it’s about time I combine these two.”
