Director. Born 26 June 1976. Self-taught filmmaker. Since 2003 Johnsen has directed, produced and financed his films from start to end.
Johnson has a focus on social issues and differences in the world and is curious about artists, especially in third world countries, and how they manage to develop and produce their art, often under extreme circumstances.
Renowned for "Murder" (2009), the story of at-risk women suffering under Nicaragua's strict ban on abortion. Combining issues of human rights and art, "Ai Weiwei The Fake Case" (2013) brings us close up to dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.
