Director, producer and owner of Rosforth Films, Andreas Johnsen has a sharp eye and a big heart for subcultures. He points his camera to the underground, looking at what moves and grooves at the verge of the norms of society and often also on the edge of the law. He has a genuine interest in people and music, and a natural bond with individuals who confront the establishment. Where the more conservative might picture what goes on at the surface, where the problems and the results of actions are vivid, Andreas Johnsen locates what takes place below the surface, where the problems are battled or seeded and where ‘real people’ live. It is these motives that has brought Andreas in touch with entomophagy. That and a general interest in food - and good stories. He is renowned for such films as Ai Weiwei - The Fake Case, A Kind of Paradise and Murder. You can find these and the rest of his films at his company's website www.rosforth.com
