Jon Bang Carlsen

(1950 – )

Film director. Born 28 September 1950. Graduate of the Danish Film School, 1976. Has written and directed more than thirty films, both documentaries and feature films. The director's signature hybrid style combines documentary and fictional interpretations, and many of his documentaries are visually and symbolically powerful, often staged portraits of marginal figures and milieus.



Early classics include "Jenny" (1977), "A Rich Man" (1979), "Hotel of the Stars" (1981), "Phoenix Bird" (1984) and "Before the Guests Arrive" (1986).
