P&I - Director Bio

Pella Kagerman was educated at the Royal Institute of Art and Hugo Lilja at the National College of Film & Television, both in Stockholm, Sweden. They have collaborated since 2009. In the UK they are represented by ITG and in the US by WME. Together they created The Unliving, a philosophical zombie short, that won prizes at Berlinale, Sitges, Clermont-Ferrand and other film festivals. Aniara is their first feature film.




Breakout festival success Aniara is a Swedish space opera that balances a spectacular sense of intergalactic dread with more mundane matters. Earth spaceship Aniara is knocked off course while carrying passengers to a new home on Mars, and crew and passengers alike must cope. Religious zeal, ritualistic orgies and an artificial-intelligence system that offers a form of escape all clash aboard the sprawling craft. An adaptation of a 1956 poem by Swedish Nobel laureate Harry Martinson. [15]
