Theresa Traore Dahlberg

Welcome Theresa Traore Dahlberg!

9 October, 2013

Momento Film is very happy to welcome Theresa Traore Dahlberg as a new director! Theresa has previously directed the warm documentary Taxi Sister, which screened at several international film festivals, and we believe that she is one of the most interesting rising voices on the Swedish documentary scene. Characterized by a personal narrative and a strong visual imagery, her films have the ability to tackle serious and important social issues in a humorous manner. Currently Theresa is developing a project set in Burkina Faso, which she will start to film on location in November.

If you are interested in Theresa’s previous documentary, feel free to check out the trailer.
