Off Set 2018 TIFF Portrait Series: Phoenix (Føniks)

Off Set 2018 TIFF Portrait Series: Phoenix (Føniks)

Up until the inception of the naughts, Camilla Strøm Henriksen was a face we’d find on television and she would parlay this experience in front of the camera into a long term gig behind the camera. Descending into TIFF with her directorial debut in the Discovery programme, Phoenix is a Norwegian and Swedish co-production coming of ager that visits tragedy and the trickle down effects of mental illness.
