Marlene Emilie Lyngstad
Marlene Emilie Lyngstad (born 1997) is a Norwegian director and scriptwriter living in Denmark. She graduated as a director from the National Film School of Denmark with the film Norwegian Offspring, which has won awards at Cannes Film Festival and Nordic Panorama. In her work she tries to evoke a conflicting mixture of empathy, disgust, humor and melancholy. She has acknowledged she's an insignificant part of a larger incomprehensible plot, and is trying to deal with it by laughing and crying with seamless transitions.
