These days I'm working to finish my feature documentary together with editor Jesper Osmund. A story I've been living with and shooting since 2015 is about to come out into open air. Produced by Auto Images. Expected to premiere in 2018.


At the moment I'm also traveling a bit around with my camera as I'm part of capturing a couple of different stories out there. Looking forward to share it all as we wrap them up.

Documentary. Running time 76 minutes. 2015.


On April 28, 1945, life begins again. Hundreds of survivors from the German concentration camps arrive to the harbour of Malmö, Sweden. While they take their first steps in freedom Swedish news photographers film them. Now, 70 years later the survivors are watching this archive footage for the very first time and as they discover themselves they re-experience the emotions from this special day. Bernard Kempler was 9 years old when he came to Malmö. He survived the war by dressing up as a girl. Elsie Ragusin from New York City was visiting her grandparents in Italy when she was accused of being a spy. She was put in a boxcar and sent to Auschwitz.


These and many other emotional stories are evoked for the first time in Every Face Has a Name and the archive reveals an extraordinary blend of stories coming from Jewish survivors, Norwegian resistance men, Polish mothers with newborn babies and British spies. All united in the moment of freedom. Moments and scenes also taking place all over the world today. Endless streams of war survivors arriving to a new country. All anonymous. Faces without names.

Documentary. Running time 96 minutes. 2016.


The film closely follows Zlatan, from his debut with the Malmö FF team in 1999 through his conflict-ridden years with Ajax Amsterdam, and up to his final breakthrough with Juventus in 2005. Becoming Zlatan is a coming-of-age film that captures the complicated journey of this young, talented and troubled player as he becomes a superstar in the international football world.


It’s a story about a young talent living under constant pressure: from teammates in Malmö who think he’s too egoistical and only plays for himself; from the tough managers at Ajax who send him to the bench, where he loses his self-confidence; and from his father, who tells the 18-year-old Zlatan: “You’re nothing. You’re nothing special until you’ve succeeded internationally.

Throughout his journey, Zlatan stays true to himself. When he finally succeeds in Italy, he also becomes much more private. Soccer superstar Zlatan Ibrahimović is an enigma, but in this story from his breakthrough years, he gives us a glimpse at who he really is – if even just for a moment.
