Prinsesser fra Blokken, TV-Show 4 episodes, 2016


TV documentary about a group of girls from the Copenhagen Psy-Trance scene. They are girls from the block but they call themselves princesses. DR 3's reportage series takes us behind and beyond the fake lashes, to a unique and closed environment where beauty comes from the outside, and makeup works as both shield and weapon.

We Chose The Milky Way, 28 min, 2015


Scenes from life on another planet, where a hedonistic civilisation of young women decorate themselves with artificial nails, white clothes and a fake tan before taking the limo to the city. But Eva Marie Rødbro's film is from the suburbs of Copenhagen, and is shaped by its environment. In other words, an unplaceable, anthropological mutation of a bling hip hop video, social-realist science fiction and a documentary version of 'Spring Breakers', whose surreal shock cuts place us as participants, rather than mere spectators, in a world where everything is artificial except the friendships. In a number of films, Rødbro has documented the restlessness, fragility and self-destructive feeling of invincibility of youth and early adulthood. Her film school graduation film lives up to all the promises that her previous work of photographs and short films has made, and is an extremely style-conscious and intelligent study of a lifestyle and an environment, where pure excess is elevated to an existential principle.

Dan Mark, 30 min, 2014


In this film E M R has directed the camera towards a young boy who lives in the same house as herself in Copenhagen's Vesterbro district. His name is Dan Mark - nothing less! - and his life is a state of constant action, which in no small bit is due to his diagnosed ADHD, but which can't reduce him to a social case study. On the contrary, Rødbro is at a highly energetic eye level with the young man, whose parents and friends pour good advice down on him about the life that he is about to become adult in. A piece of modern street documentary by one of the Danish film scene's most promising names.

I Touched Her Legs, 15 min, 2010


An extraordinary portrait of a group of Southern teens hanging out in cars, rooms, and neighborhood yards in humid pool-party weather. Rødbro creates a deft and skillful montage in which animals, insects children and adolescents all inhabit an environment easily and warmly shared. Through subtly glancing shots taken at oblique angles and in brief bursts, I Touched Her Legs reaches directly into the soul of this small band of friends and explains everything that is important without a single dull expository declaration on their circumstances.
