Professionally, my first priority is to create dialogue across different communities and living conditions, and my own films as well as the work I am responsible for as a festival director, have been shown in film, artistic as well as political contexts. Locations includes DR TV, Louisiana Art Museum, Herstedvester Prison, Aida Refugee Camp, Los Angeles International Film Festival, Senate House London as well as libraries and schools.

Born in Greenland to Danish parents, I hold a Master's Degree in philosophy and anthropology from Lunds University and have lived in Asunción, Berlin, London and Copenhagen, where I have worked as a filmmaker, festival director and writer.

I have made award-winning films in Bosnia, Denmark, Greenland, China and the former DDR, and they have given voice to people who are overheard or oppressed. The movies focuses on themes ranging from artists' working conditions in authoritarian regimes (Upper Reaches of the Arts, 2007) over post-colonial consequences (Faith, Hope and Greenland, 2009 and ECHOES, 2010) to trauma and reconciliation (OPEN, 2012 and Anahí's Room, 2017).

My latest film The Last Human (supported by Danish Film Institute and Greenland's Government) premiered at CPH:DOX in 2022, where it won the Nordic:Dox Award, and was nominated for a Robert Award this year. The film contrasts young people's thoughts and future dreams with the existential threats of the anthropocene age.

In 2012, in collaboration with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, I founded Greenland Eyes International Film Festival – the largest festival of contemporary Greenlandic culture to date. For three years young Greenlandic filmmakers toured with the festival from Berlin, across the Nordic region to the USA, where it celebrated its last stop at the Smithsonian Institution.
