Pernille Rose Grønkjær



Pernille Rose Grønkjær was born in 1973 in Denmark. She graduated from the National Danish Film School in 1997. She is the director of various documentary films for the screen and for television including Min morfar forfra, Repeating Grandpa (selected for Input 2002 at Rotterdam), and The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun, winner of the Joris Ivens competition at IDFA 2006. "Method acting is when actors "live" the part od the character they are going to "portray". Sometimes in documentary I get the same feeling: Living and breathing the main characters. "Method Doc" is a perfect expression for this. Spending so much time with your characters you become a natural part of their world,...“ she says about her working method.
