ANNA GUTTO is a theater and film artist. After heralding the US premieres of Jon Fosse’s plays together with Sunde and Oslo Elsewhere, Anna moved on to work in film. Her feature film debut PARADISE HIGHWAY, starring Academy Award-winners Juliette Binoche and Morgan Freeman, premiered at Locarno Film Festival 2022 and was hailed by Variety as “a singularly promising debut for a first-time feature filmmaker.” While in the Big Apple, in addition to working as an actor as well as co-artistic director for Oslo Elsewhere, Anna also produced concerts at Carnegie Hall, was a consultant for HBO’s BOARDWALK EMPIRE and a contributing guest lecturer at Columbia University (2012 Ibsen’s A Doll House). She graduated with Honors from Columbia University in 2016 with an MFA in film directing. Gutto co-directed HOME FOR CHRISTMAS for Netflix and her short films won multiple festival awards, incl. Best Director and Best Ensemble Cast. MOMMY HEIST was broadcast on French channel FR3 and A LUCKY MAN is an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Award recipient and in the screening catalog of the Museum of the Moving Image. Handling a range of genres and mediums, for Anna, storytelling is about connection – characters connecting with each other, and stories connecting with an audience. Anna is now a dual citizen of the US and Norway. www.annagutto.com
