Angelika Abramovitch began her film career in London in 2012 with her award-winning short film The Horse. She then started to experiment with short films, music videos and art projects which brought a certain finesse and strength to her visual style as a director.
Abramovitch’s time at the media company VICE & i-D briefly got her into documentary filmmaking. Her documentary short PAPPA was shortlisted for the Swedish Academy Awards in 2019.
Abramovitch graduated from Stockholm University of the Arts in 2021 and finished her studies at Alma Löv Script Academy in December 2022. She is the recipient of the 2021 Nordic Talent Special Mention Award and a Wild Card development fund for her upcoming feature film, A Soviet Love Story. Abramovitch’s graduation film Tjejtoan 4-ever/Catcave Hysteria premiered at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2022 and was shortlisted for the Swedish Academy Awards. In 2022 she was also selected for Future Frames at KVIFF and Les Arcs Talent Village in December 2022.
Currently, Abramovitch is working on a film exhibition for The Nordic Museum which will be exhibited in 2023, and her debut feature film The Braid with the production company Cinenic. This year she will also start developing the TV series The Snake Pit together with Hannah Arnesen and the production company Most Alice.
With a sense of rhythm and a strong visual style, Abramovitch’s films explore the boundaries between the ugly and the beautiful, pleasure and pain. With a craving for fake blood, and always a unique style.
