Per Fly

(1960 – )

Director. Born 14/1 1960, Denmark. Graduate of the National Film School of Denmark in 1993. Fly's most significant work is the awardwinning societal trilogy consisting of "The Bench" (2000), "Inheritance" (2003) and "Manslaughter" (2005). Fly is a recipient of the prestigious Carl Th. Dreyer Award.



His societal trilogy about the lower, middle and upper class in Denmark won critical acclaim and drew a large audience. "The Bench" received a European Film Academy nomination and was a triple winner at Lübeck, while "Inheritance" received seven Robert Awards plus awards in San Sebastian, Rouen and Mexico City. "Manslaughter", which completes the trilogy, received Nordic Council's Film Award 2005. Together, the three films in the trilogy have brought in a million admissions at national cinemas alone. In 2018 Fly wrote and directed the Danish-Canadian thriller "Backstabbing for Beginners", based on the memoir "Backstabbing for Beginners - My Crash Course in International Diplomacy" by Michael Soussan.



For television Fly created the critically acclaimed miniseries "Performances" in 2007 for which actress Sonja Richter won the Golden Nymph in Monte Carlo. He directed several episodes of the Danish crime series "Follow the Money" (2016), which premiered at the 2015 Berlinale and won a Robert Award for Best Danish Television series in 2017. Fly is concept director on "Erobreren," a historical drama series in development for HBO Nordic, based on volumes 2-4 of the major Danish literary classic "Pelle the Conqueror" by Martin Andersen Nexø.
