Gunilla Bergerham

Describe yourself in one or two sentences:
Being artistic director of a touring theatre company I have written, produced and performed plays during many years. I have worked in film and television mainly as an actress, but I’m now going for the screenwriting experience.

How did you fall in love with filmmaking?
As a playwright I have always enjoyed investigating the world of unspoken words and strong female characters. The odd and the comic reality. That is also what I love in the art of filmmaking.

What are your strengths as a filmmaker?
I’m sprouting to find out.

Name one movie that changed your life:
Amadeus by Milos Forman

What excites you about Sprouting Pictures?
This is a group of courageous filmmakers that have the passion and skill to make their stories grow into maturation – like sprouts splitting the stale earth, no matter what the weather is like.
