Lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
Languages: Swedish, Finnish, English
Pia´s strenght in cinematography lies in her ability to capture a true feeling. She has been working on several feature documentary films on languages she does not master. It does not stop her from being able to tell their story, on the contrary, it gives her the reason to listen even more closely and capture the energy in the room. Her positive approach and Finnish stubbornness in filming and directing has given her a specific style that can be recognized.
She graduated from Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts 2015 where she shot her first feature film Rosa Moln. She also shot the critically acclaimed Gympaläraren, for Swedish National Television (SVT) which became the program of the year in Sweden 2016. She has also shot Until Cancer Do Us Apart, which got nominated in both New York International Film Festival and Singapore IFF.
Currently she is working on three feature documentary films that are based in Sweden, Greece, USA and Norway.
