For director Andreas Johnsen, filmmaking is about giving in to his driving force: curiosity. As such, filmmaking has become his way of investigating, experiencing and knowing the World. So, when Andreas wants to learn about China, its political system and censorship policy he makes a film with the internationally acclaimed artist Ai Weiwei. And when he wants to understand the world of gastronomy and food systems, nothing is more natural than to start filming a team from Nordic Food Lab researching edible insects across the globe. This dedication and empathy are clearly expressed in the resulting films that act on multiple levels. They contain more than just the stories at their surface. They’re full of the ambitions, hopes and dreams that drive the characters portrayed. So, while his films leave the audience entertained, they also provide food for thought, because Andreas has the ability to explain the intricate and complex, while composing a beautiful story.
Andreas Johnsen has made a number of documentaries as director, producer and cinematographer. His films have been shown on festivals all around the world and have been broadcasted in countless countries. He is renowned for such films as “Kidd Life”, “A Kind of Paradise”, “Murder” and Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case”, which in 2013 was nominated at IDFA’s “Feature Length Competition”, in Berlin 2014 at Cinema for Peace Awards and won the Danish Film Critics Award in 2014.
