Biography
She graduated from The National Film School of Denmark in 2005. While still in school, she received attention for Fuck the Rapist, a collection of fictional advertisements for spiked tampons designed to protect against rape. She is known for her suggestive visual language, naturalistic direction, and unique talent for telling a story in actions instead of words. Her films In transit and Goodbye Bluebird have been shown in film festivals around the world. She has created and directed a drama series for the Danish TV channel DR1, attended the Royal Institute of Art, and worked at the Royal Dramatic Theater.

Main program

She Monkeys / Lisa Aschan

She Monkeys is about the art of survival. We follow 15-year-old Emma, her seven-year-old little sister Sara, and Emma’s newfound friend, Cassandra. When Emma joins a riding stable where other teens train to perform acrobatics on horseback, she meets Cassandra and they initiate a relationship filled with physical and psychological challenges. Emma does whatever it takes to master the rules of the game. Lines are soon crossed. Despite this, Emma can’t resist the intoxicating feeling of total control.
