Latest release as Co-Director and Director of Photography (only available in Swedish)
Vi får följa Betlehem Isaak när hon söker efter sin pappa, den svensk-eritreanske journalisten och författaren Dawit Isaak. Hon träffar de människor som kände honom i Sverige och Betlehems mamma Sofia uttalar sig för första gången sedan 2005. Filmen blir ett löfte om att tystnaden aldrig ska segra. Men det är också en film om att vara dotter, mamma och att sakna en morfar. En dokumentärfilm av Betlehem Isaak och Caroline Troedsson.

More About Me
Hooked on real life stories. Based in the south of Sweden.
I released my first feature documentary PATRIOTIC HIGHWAY in 2019. The film premiered at Gothenburg International Film Festival. Among other places the film screened at cph:dox, Nordisk Panorama and was awarded a special mention at AJB DOC in Sarajevo. The film was broadcasted at SVT and YLE as well as worldwide by the Witness strand at Al Jazeera English.
I regularly work as Director of Photography. Most recently on the short documentary DAGAR UTAN DIG /DAYS WITHOUT YOU (2023) for SVT, which I co-directed with Betlehem Isaak. I'm proud I got the opportunity to join as DOP together with the great team behind creating NELLY & NADINE (2022) which premiered at Berlinale and won the Teddy Award, and ONLY THE DEVIL LIVES WITHOUT HOPE (2020) which premiered at cph:dox. Both films directed by Magnus Gertten. I have the privilege to nurture my fascination for investigative journalism as DOP on the Swedish series UPPDRAG GRANSKNING at SVT, and also have experience of educational films from the well received series AFTER THE FLIGHT (2020) directed by René Bo Hansen.
My background is as Director and Director of Photography in a number of shorts for clients, coach in young creator’s projects, and practical positions in bigger film crews. I started off inspired by storytellers in my childhood surroundings in the deep forests of northern Skåne, Sweden. My studies in business and economics was a brief shift of focus. Since 2006 it's been all about filmmaking.
