Kino Koszyk HB was founded by Joanna Helander & Bo Persson as an independent company in 1987 with a head office in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company produces creative documentaries for cinema and television. The company also produces books and exhibitions.

Several of Kino Koszyk’s films have had theatrical releases in Sweden and other countries. These include the three creative documentaries “Eighth Day Theatre”, ”Returning” and “The Twins from Cracow”.
They have been screened in theatres and at festivals in a number of countries. “Eighth Day Theatre” and “Returning” were shown on the German television channel ARD, ARTE in France & Germany, Czech Television, Polish Television, and more.
Most film projects of Kino Koszyk have been co-financed by The Swedish Film Institute, Swedish Television, ARTE, Film i Väst, and others.

In countries with censorship like Belarus, several of KIno Koszyk´s films have been widely circulated as “video samizdat”.

Other shorter films and audiovisual projects by Kino Koszyk that have had commercial releases in Sweden and other countries include “Gerard K – Letters from Poland”, “Long Live Poland”, ”If She from Poland Was Here” about Nobel Prize winner Wislawa Szymborska and “Ladies Looking”

The film “Waltz with Milosz” was inspired by our friendship with Czeslaw Milosz.

“Watching the Moon at Night” premiered at the Swedish Film institute in 2016. It was screened as well in the European Parliament and the Swedish Parliament and in more than 15 different countries in theatres and festivals.
