Who is the director?

The film is helmed by podcaster and novelist Sigge Eklund. En Del Av Dig is his first foray into directing, but is the product of a lifelong dream. In a recent interview with Vogue Scandinavia, Eklund stated that he was “put on this planet to make movies” and approached every element of filmmaking with curiosity and excitement. Speaking about his desire to represent the teenage experience truthfully, Eklund shared, “being 17 is not a safe situation. It’s almost life or death, remember?”
