Jesper W. Nielsen

(1962 - )

Born 1962, Denmark. Graduated in editing from the National Film School of Denmark, 1986. Has made a number of short films and feature films. Received the critics' appraisal for his original approach to drama for children and young people, demonstrated in the feature film "Little Big Sister" (1998), which won the Jury's Special Commendation at Cinekid Amsterdam.

Has created a series of short films for children: "The Bogey Man" (1995), "The Noodle Poop" (1997) and the awardwinning "Southern Comfort" (1997). The latter two were subsequently transformed into the feature-length "Little Big Sister". Jesper W. Nielsen's third feature film, "Okay" (2002), was a critics' favourite as well as a boxoffice hit and winner at Locarno.
