My professional life is between my film work, teaching and jury/consultancy work in Denmark and internationally. The last 15 years I have been teaching the “Personal Pictorial Language” workshop with Arne Bro, vice-director at The National Film School of Denmark and founder of it’s Documentary Department. It is an intense praxis oriented five days workshop focusing on the development of the artist’s personal pictorial language. It’s aimed at film directors, students at Film Schools, artists and media professionals.
