Up in the mountains and out in the desert – Clara is a new director based in Sweden and the US. Her youthful style is distinctly raw but sensible and finds balance between beauty and despair. Claras curiosity for the out-of-the-ordinary has landed her jobs for Google, MTV and IKEA. With a BA in Visual Communications from Beckmans College of Design Stockholm, and through editing studies at New York Film Academy, Clara’s background in advertising led her to filmmaking.
Besides commercials, she is currently working on her debut documentary about off-grid childhood and friendship in a society beyond civilization in California. Clara was nominated a Young Directors Award in Cannes 2018 for best short film.
