LEA GLOB (Director) graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 2011 with the film MEETING MY FATHER KASPER HØJAT. Through the film Lea takes the audience on a very personal detective journey. Lea’s father disappeared when she was two years old, and later on died in prison. Reconstructing her father’s identity by fitting objects and stories in a puzzle, the narrative operates on the border of reality and imagination. Among other acknowledgments, the film was nominated for The Robert Awards and received the award for most innovative documentary at the Chinese Sichuan TV festival.
Since then, Lea has received the main award at Nordic Talents for the development of the documentary project HUMAN FEMALE SEXUALITY in cooperation with director Mette Carla Albrechtsen, which went into production in the summer of 2014. She also received the Odense International Pitch Me Baby Award for the experimental documentary short THE NIGHT MY MOTHER WAS BORN. Lea is currently working as co-director on Eva Mulvad’s film A FAMILY ON THE RUN.
