Born in 1980 in Southern Jutland, Denmark, Frelle Petersen is a filmmaker who explores human behaviour and family relations. Ever since he was a teenager, Frelle knew he wanted to be a director, and he experimented from an early age with his father’s small camcorder. In his award-winning shorts Going Nowhere (2010), As You Were (2011), and Mommy (2012) his interest in family and human interaction became apparent. Uncle (2019)—where Frelle serves as writer, director, cinematographer, and editor—is his second feature film, after the critically acclaimed Where Have all the Good Men Gone? (2016).
