About the Director

With a history of editing, Anders Helgeson always finds a way, frame by frame, to incorporate humour and the special Thelma/Louise twist into all the projects he touches, combining the process and style of television, documentaries and commercials into a new level of contemporary branded entertainment. He is a kind, brave director, whose greatest talent is best exposed when the script allows him to capture the truth. Helgeson will extract any kind of expression from an actor, even those they didn’t know they had, in his quest to deliver entertaining stories. The documentary style feature film ‘Nice People’, created and directed together with Thelma/Louise partner Karin af Klintberg, has recently received one of Swedens most prestigious awards.

Karin Af Klintberg is the creative mind behind the most innovative Swedish television series of today, ‘Eating Through History’, ‘The Christmas Calendar’ and ‘Landet Brunsås’. Her style combines entertainment and education in a unique, award-winning way. As she explains it, “After all, everyone will be happy if they feel that they learned something.” She is a true storyteller humbly aiming to make the world a better place to live for all of us. The documentary-style feature film ‘Nice People’, created and directed together with Thelma/Louise founder Anders Helgeson, has recently received one of Sweden’s most prestigious awards.
