Biographical sketch

Elefteria Kalogritsa was born in Greece in 1960 and grew up in Sweden. She became interested in drawing and painting as a child and was accepted by a local school for basic art education at the age of 16. She continued her formal artistic studies while attending Hovedskous School of Art in Gothenburg from 1978 to 1984. She then began working in the field of painting and graphic art and her debut exhibition in 1985 was well received. In 1988, she began studies of film and video at the Film Academy in Gothenburg and made her first short film in 1989. Between 1989 and 1997, she wrote scripts, co-directed, edited and partially produced several short films and vignette films together with film colleague Håkan Carlbrand. Tidens ansikte is her latest short film. Presently she alternates between filmmaking and painting.
