Erik Skjoldbjærg is a Norwegian filmmaker best known for his debut film, the critically acclaimed Insomnia. His body of work includes the Elizabeth Wurtzel adaptation, Prozac Nation, Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People and the historically based Nokas.
Erik was in Toronto to screen his latest film, Pioneer, at the Toronto International Film Festival. We invited him to our studio at OCAD U to discuss Norwegian cinema, the historical basis of his last two films and the style of his films.
