Directors

Nalle Sjöblad

Born in 1982, Nalle Sjöblad is a director who has to write his own biographies and thus succumbs to feelings of deep modesty. Overcoming these feelings he hopes that his filmmaking is perceived as both honest and relevant. Nalle has spent the last 10 years directing commercial films, the ironic opposite. In the process, he has found a storytelling style that is both humorous and dark.
