Pasi "Sleeping" Myllymäki is a Finnish filmmaker known for his alternative short films in the punk and underground scenes. Myllymäki graduated as a graphic designer from the Lahti Institute of Fine Arts and Design in 1976. Inspired by the DIY mentality of punk, he began making his own Super 8 shorts with the amateur cinematographer Risto Laakkonen. Between 1976–85 they produced nearly 50 short films. Between 1979–82, Myllymäki published a fanzine called “Maanalainen kaitaelokuva” (Underground DIY Cinema). The published articles were frenzied rants against the conservative values of 8 mm enthusiasts and manifestos that heralded a “new wave culture”. Myllymäki's underground short films have been screened e.g. at Image Forum Film Festival, Japan, and Venice Biennale 2017.
