Lena Koppel is a director and scriptwriter that has worked many years for TV, Film and Theatre. After film studies, her first internship was at Ingmar Bergman’s After the Rehearsal (1983). Her trademarks are gentle, intelligent and warm humour, which gives her films a friendly yet sharp tone.

Lena has a long and well renowned career behind her, where she has written and co-written six feature films, directed several tv-series as well as theatre plays. Her strengths lie in creating comedy/drama and suspense.

When she started to write and produce her own films in the late 80’s she was inspired by the current time art house-films. In the 90’s, she worked at SVT’s children- and teenage department. Since then, she has worked with many of the most prestigious producers in the industry.
