Mette Carla works as a Director and Creative Writer.

She has a strong visual profile as well as conceptual approach to cinema and often engages in portraying difficult and taboo subjects, with an anthropological eye. 

In 2019 she won a Silver Lion in Cannes and two Young Director awards for the film “Voiceless Women”, co-directed with Martin Furze. 

Her intuitive mindset enriches the casting process - whether it be with actors or everyday people - she easily integrates the characters in her innovative interpretations of the real world. Mette Carla started out as an Art Director but subsequently attended the National Film School of Denmark where she graduated as a documentary Director. Her first feature film, the award winning and Robert and Bodil nominated “Venus” has traveled the world and festival circuit.

She’s currently working on her second feature documentary as well as directing commercials
