Kaspar Astrup Schröder
Award winning filmmaker, Kaspar Astrup Schroder, is one of Denmark’s most prolific directors. His international films have screened at many festivals, such as IDFA, NYFF, Chicago IFF, SFIFF, CPH:DOX, and Hot Docs. His first film ”The Invention of Dr. NakaMats” (2009) was nominated for more than 20 awards and opened up a Japanese world seldom seen, which led to his third feature length documentary ”Rent A Family Inc.” (Winner of The Golden Eye Award at Zürich IFF 2013). The film was picked up by one of the majors in Hollywood for adaptation.
Besides Japan, Kaspar has directed films in China, Thailand, Myanmar, USA and Denmark, all with strong main characters undergoing an existential experience at a crucial time in their life.
Kaspar has always made an effort not to distinguish between documentary and fiction. ”It’s all about storytelling and portraying a drama. Drama is character, whether it’s a true story or not, and sometimes it just turns out that reality exceeds our imagination”.
