About our collaborating photographer Marco Di Filippo: “I worked with both Trine and Marco during the Berlin Film Festival 2015. I am always so grateful to be surrounded and collaborate with people that make you feel comfortable and safe because then I always do better in my work. Trine made everything fun and effortless – although like all good producers, I’m sure she was paddling her feet furiously under her graceful surface. And Marco captured some very beautiful images that were the official photographs for the Northern Lights event I took part in. Can’t wait to work together again!”
