Up in the mountains and out in the desert – Clara Tägtström is a director based in Sweden and the US. With a BA in Visual Communications from Beckmans College of Design Stockholm, and through editing studies at New York Film Academy, Clara’s background in advertising led her to filmmaking. And although fairly new to film as a medium, her youthful style finds balance between beauty and despair and has landed her jobs for Google, MTV and IKEA.
Besides commercials, Claras curiosity intrigued her to explore documentary storytelling, she is currently working on her debut documentary about off-grid childhood and friendship in a society beyond civilization in California. Clara was nominated in Young Directors Award in Cannes 2018 for best short film.
