Tea Lindeburg debuting with period drama

NEW FILM. Production is well under way for Tea Lindeburg's feature film debut, an adaptation of the Danish literary classic 'A Night of Death' from 1912 about three women's struggle on a farm in the late 19th century. The Danish premiere is set for October 2021.

A graduate of the alternative Danish film school Super16, Tea Lindeburg is making her feature debut with the upcoming period drama 'Høst' (Danish title), currently in production. 

The film, based on the novel 'A Night of Death' from 1912 by Marie Bregendahl (1867-1940), follows 14-year-old Lise, her aunt and grandmother and their everyday life on a farm during the end of the 19th century. The film depicts three different generations of women struggling to find their place in society. 

Lise, the eldest daughter in a group of eight siblings, is preparing to leave the farm to study. However, when her mother goes into labor, Lise must claim responsibility for her siblings, realising that her and her family's life will never be the same.

Lindeburg graduated from Super16 in 2006. She is behind the upcoming Danish Netflix series 'Equinox', based on her podcast series 'Equinox 1985' which was nominated for the Prix Italia 2017. Upcoming actor Flora Ofelia Hofmann Lindahl takes on the lead, with Thure Lindhardt, Stine Fischer Christensen, Ida Cæcilie Rasmussen and Lisbet Dahl playing her family. 

'Høst' is produced by Lise Orheim Stender and Jesper Morthorst for Motor with support from the Danish Film Institute, the regional film fund FilmFyn and broadcaster DR. The Danish premiere is set for 21 October 2021.
