Sverre Aujar Nistad Kvamme was born in 1994 and grew up in a small village in Western Norway. He studied at The European Film College and Nordland College of Art and Film and has a BA from Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art. With his personal approach to filmmaking, he has in his work moved between big topics like gender, childhood, sorrow, and death put in specific contexts.

“In the film “Villdyr” I explore a group of kids on their way into puberty. I try to catch their spontaneous and liberating energy, an energy which sometimes can be dangerous. I’m also trying to tell a subtle love story, and show the vulnerability in these situations.”
