Hapa 2011.

The short-film Hapa is my latest collaboration with my good friend photographer Daniel Urhøj.

The title is taken from the Hawaiian language term used to describe a person of mixed heritage.

Our film Hapa is an intimate portrait of how prejudice and stereotypes can affect the individual.

The film is a mix of drama and documentary. The text being based on both my own experiences and stories from other minorities growing up in a clash of Eastern and Western culture.

Screenfighting DK

I recently had the great pleasure of being invited to teach a course in screenfighting at the dojo of Ki Ju Jitsu in Frederiksvœrk. The school also known as Frederiksvœrk Self Defence is actually the place where i started my first formal training in martial arts 25 years ago!

It was a true honor to be invited there after all these years. My childhood friend and former dojo class-mate Sensei Martin is now running the school and he has done an amazing job there! All though we only get a chance to meet every five years it still feels l...Read more

Detroit Rising

Downtown Copenhagen recently had the great pleasure of hosting the most gritty and meanest location known to the good folks of Amager. The celebratory event was none other than the making of the new feature-film project Detroit Rising by director Thomas Eikrem!

The film which so far has seen it's location shoots in New York, London, Irak, Afghanistan and now Copenhagen has written cult all over it, and also a fresh approach to independent film-making.

Our wonderful director Thomas knows how to pick a team and I had the grea...Read more

The Detectives & Summer in CPH

Well, the month of June just came and went and now going into July I'm glad to say that summer seems to finally hit Copenhagen!

The weather often seems to be questionable here but at least the temperature is rising and so is the mood of the Danes.

If you've only seen Copenhagen in the colder parts of the year I highly recommend you to visit during the short summer here. It's definitely a different experience and the so called "cold" Danes also seem a lot warmer and relaxed!

CPH PIX 2011

So the annual film festival 'CPH PIX' just had its run here in Copenhagen.

I'm a big fan of this event as it's one of the few times of the year that you get to see pure independent cinema on the silver screen here in Denmark!

The event is also good at inviting many of the foreign and local filmmakers to Copenhagen to introduce their work and/or conduct seminars.

This event saw amongst others French director Romain Gavras with his film 'Our Day Will Come', the amazing 'Hobo With A Shotgun' a...Read more
