About the director:

Born in Stockholm in 1973, Anna Odell was educated at Sweden’s University College of Arts, Craft and Design, and the Royal Institute of Art. Her examination work Unknown Woman (2009) - in which she reconstructed a psychosis - sparked a debate about the meaning of art and has been shown at various locations in Scandinavia and in Paris. “The Reunion“ is her first feature film.
