Anna-Maria Jóakimsdóttir-Hutri


I am a filmmaker and storyteller based in the heart of Scandinavia. With roots from both the Icelandic sagas and the Danish new wave drama, I’ve been nourishing my talent of storytelling in the compelling silence of the Finnish marshlands. First art school brought me to Finland but then love made me stay now twenty years later it is time to move on to new horizons.
In my Mary Poppins bag, I have films, theatre plays, scripts, and short stories as well as some commercial videos. With a base in the field of Photography, I have a strong visual language that emphasizes atmosphere and moods. My strongest tool for creating something is a deep sympathetic emotional connection to the surrounding world and the people and life within it. I have a detailed and specific sense of changes in energies and subtle intentions and often I anticipate the upcoming just by picking up the present moment in all its multitude.
