Biography

Every story needs tension, it’s what compels us to engage and keep watching. Swedish director Johan Perjus is well aware of this dynamic and often uses opposing forces in one form or another to imbue his directing with a sincere sense of beauty and humanity.

With a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from the University of Stockholm, his background as a designer certainly played a role in his understanding of this interplay between harmony and discord as expressed through shape, composition and color. By way of photography, it was his discovery of the collaborative nature of film, with its added layers of movement and sound, paired with an incurable love and curiosity for working with actors that transitioned to him to where he is today.
