Kalevala is Finland’s national epic. Compiled by Elias Lönnrot in the 1800s, it consists of epic poems of creation, magic, lust, vengeance and death. A story of the sons of Kaleva, the forefather of Finns, it takes the reader to a mythical ancient land filled with monsters and magic, and even to the realm of the dead. This animated series, narrated by Reidar Wasenius, illustrates the story of Kalevala from start to finish. This fourth episode sees the young hot-headed warrior Joukahainen avenging his sister's death from the previous episode...

This series is a passion project of mine, to bring our ancient stories for everyone to enjoy, in an easily digestible form.
