Drengestreger (The Prank) – 2012

Simon has just moved to a remote village with his parents. The night of New Year’s Eve he’s introduced to some new friends who bring him along on a traditional venture around the village celebrating New Year’s Eve.

Through the program at Super16, I’ve been challenged as a writer and director. It’s been a very inspirational process. My first film, “Angels in the Snow”, was inspired by experiences my brother and I had losing our father. In my second film, “Words”, I took a more distanced look at an author and his responsibilities as an artist, and in the latest film, “The Prank”, I’ve returned to personal experiences as a child growing up in a remote village. What keeps me making films is the thrill of bringing words to live.
