Elin Halvorsen

Elin Halvorson


Elin Halvorsen is a filmmaker, journalist and author. She explores that which is not conformist, but rather that which is disruptive, rebellious and unruly.

Her works combine the diversity of light, 16mm film and the morbidity of cinema to create experiential spaces of subcultures. She likes to travel. Her queer, feminist works create a sphere of identification away from the norm and cinematic provinces far from the linear world.

The cooperation between Madame Courage Production and Elin Halverson exists since 2016.
