Monday brought us sad news: Peter von Bagh, Petteri as we knew him, had passed away on Wednesday September 17th 2014. A great, perhaps the greatest film lover was gone.

Petteri’s passing has touched many, and his life’s work has been looked back on extensively in both traditional as well as social media this passing week.
