Lisa Jespersen was born in the countryside of Denmark in 1988. Her interest in filmmaking grew as she attended the European Film College and later studied film directing at the National Film School of Denmark. She has made a handful of short films, all with an interest in the comic aspect of people’s existential crises. Her graduation film ‘September’ (2018) received a lot of attention for its precise and very emphatic portrait of a woman in her sixties and the difficulties that come with that age. ‘Persona non grata’ is her feature film debut, produced by Hyæne Film.
