Elvira Lind Making Narrative Directorial Debut with Writer Amy Herzog


Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Elvira Lind is set to make her narrative feature debut. She’s collaborating with playwright Amy Herzog on the project, which is set to shoot later this year in New York. Screen Daily broke the news.

Plot details are unknown at this time, but the pic is “inspired by elements from one of Herzog’s plays but reimagined and combined with new ideas for the feature script, which Herzog is writing,” the source details. Herzog’s plays include “4000 Miles,” which was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. and “Mary Jane,” the 2018 winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play.

Lind is up for Best Live Action Short Film at this year’s Oscars for “The Letter Room,” the story of a corrections officer who gets involved in a prisoner’s private life. Her documentary credits include “Bobbi Jene” and “Songs for Alexis.” The former was named Best Documentary Feature at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. Lind also took home the honor for Best Cinematography.

“Stay true to your work and your voice as a filmmaker,”Lind urged when we asked her advice for other women directors. “Stay focused on the stories you feel most compelled to tell and don’t let anyone tell you that you need a backup plan as a dental assistant in case you fail.”
