THE THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE

SUSANNE BIER (Director) attended the National Film School of Denmark, graduating in 1987. She was an Academy Award® semi-finalist and an award winner at the Munich Film School Festival for her graduation film. Bier's feature film debut, the Swedish-Danish co-production "Freud flytter hjemmefra"/"Freud Leaving Home" (1990) received a number of international plaudits, as did her Danish-Swedish-Portuguese "Det bli'r I familien"/"Family Matters" (1993). Her next Swedish film, "Like It Never Was Before" (1995), was the recipient of the Critic's Award at the Montreal Film Festival.

Her Danish feature "Den eneste ene"/"The One and Only" (1999), a critics' favorite that wracked up nearly a million admissions in Denmark alone, boosted her reputation as a filmmaker. Two box office hits followed: the Dogma film "Elsker dig for evigt"/"Open Hearts" (2002), which was selected for the San Sebastian, Sundance, and Toronto Film Festivals, where it received Special Mention, and "Brødre"/"Brothers" (2004), which was nominated for 11 European Film Academy awards, and received an Audience Award at Sundance, as well as Best Acting awards for its stars Connie Nielsen and Ulrich Thomsen at San Sebastian.

"After The Wedding” (2006), Bier's most recent film was released to critical acclaim in Denmark. After screening at the Toronto and Rome Film Festivals, it was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Foreign Film.
