Mehdi Avaz talks about the making of the film While We Live and how the story was inspired by the events that occurred to a friend of his while he was in high school. Julie Christiansen talks about the leading female character, Trine, who, despite the terrible events affecting her life, refuses to be a victim, showing incredible strengths and resilience.

While We Live: Inspired by true events, While We Live is a story of family, loss and love that follows four people in Northern Denmark and how their fates intertwine after a tragic accident. The story is told through a brilliantly intricate narrative that interweaves past and present to peel back layers of buried resentment and guilt.
