Australian première
“The Deluge” is the first joint full-length feature film by Jenni and Lauri Luhta. The script is based on the prophecies and riddles in the work diaries of Leonardo da Vinci (1452–1519). The work on the film began in the spring of 2019, when 500 years had passed since Leonardo's death and the Notre Dame of Paris caught fire. Our journey starts with Leonardo wandering amongst nature's sublime wonders and rumblings, finally coming upon a cave. A secret is found therein: it is Death, reciting Leonardo's prophecies in Swedish for the remainder of the film. Through Leonardo's words and visions, we look into the state of the contemporary world, our present age that was born from the shock of the 20th century and the World Wars.
