Interview with Erika Calmeyer, the director of the film “Storm”, interviewer Triin Tramberg
“It’s a complicated situation that didn’t have easy answers and solutions. That made it interesting for me to start digging into the material and the mind of the mother.” - Erika Calmeyer
Little girl Storm does not carry any memories of the tragic fatal incident that happened to her brother. Her mother alone goes through sufferings and is too scared to reveal the truth. This debut film by Erika Calmeyer has it all - powerful meaning, creative approach and outstanding acting performance.
Norwegian director Erika Calmeyer studied at Victorian College of Arts in Melbourne, Australia. Afterwards she studied directing and graduated from the Norwegian Film school in 2014. Her graduation film “Lea” gained recognition and traveled around festivals.
