Paprika Steen returns to directing

The Danish actress Paprika Steen is set to return to directing for the first time in ten years with the upcoming film Med hensyn til Julen.

Steen is known for her roles in Adams Apples, The Celebration and recently in the Danish terrorist drama Below the Surface.

Med hensyn til Julen is a drama with comic overtones as it depicts Christmas in a reconstituted family with three siblings, spouses, children, grandmothers, and dogs.

Steen previously directed the drama Aftermath, which starred Sofie Gråbøl, as well as the comedy With Your Permission.

Shooting for Med hensyn til Julen will start shooting in November on the central Danish island Funen and will be released towards the end of 2018.
