Caroline Sascha Cogez
Danish/French director Caroline Sascha Cogez grew up between the fashion capital of Paris and a hippie community in the woods, north of Copenhagen, Denmark. She began her career in cinema working as assistant director for auteur Lars von Trier on “The Idiots,” “Dancer in the Dark” and “Dogville.” This led to amazing experiences: working with the likes of Bjørk, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Deneuve, Lauren Bacall and Chloe Sevigny. She then graduated from Danish film school "Super 16" and began shooting commercials for brands such as The National Board of Health, McDonalds, Nokia and Just Eat. Caroline has also written and directed a number of award-winning short features and documentaries that have been shown both on TV as well as at film festivals across the world. Her most recent 'LuLu' won the prestigious Danish Academy Award (Robert Award) 2015 in ‘Best Long Fiction’ category at the recent awards in Denmark.
Alongside her film making, Caroline's interest in storytelling has also drawn her to working with narrative performances and installations at art galleries around Europe and the USA including IMO Copenhagen and Shoshanna Wayne Gallery in L.A. On several occasions she’s collaborated with international contemporary artists including Tal R, FOS, Superflex and Dorte Jelstup. In February 2013, she directed the art film ‘The Working Life’ for Superflex’ opening at the Mead Gallery London.
A woman of many talents, not many people may know this but Caroline also hosts a regular night time radio show in Denmark called Nattevagten (The Night Watch) on National Talk Radio24syv where she explores the art of storytelling inviting listeners to call in, developing intimate conversations with listeners all over the globe. Caroline is one of five Danish artists invited by National Talk Radio to host their own show.
Caroline brings a unique eye for both style and humour combined with solid performance and we’re thrilled to represent her for commercials in the UK.
