Randi Lindholm Hansen (DK)
Randi Lindholm Hansen (b. 1990) is a Copenhagen-based screen and prose writer, artistic organizer and facilitator working with listening as an artistic method and dramaturgical tool. Her work includes writing for film, tv, theater, performance, audio and short form prose as well as script consulting, storylining and teaching.
Listening is at the core of Randi’s practice, and she considers listening a way to exist in the world, privately and professionally. A way of orientation. She insists on listening as an active and generous act, a tool to generate empathy in an apathetic world.
Randi has a profound love of narrative. Her work explores mundanity from a feminist point of view and demonstrates a curious fascination with the quiet, the seemingly insignificant and the poetics of unlikely connection. Randi uses comedy to deflate power structures and disclose hypocrisy and injustice. There is undeniable humor in the mundane, in human foolishness and inadequacy, and Randi has no desire to distance herself from the deadpan nature of existence itself.
Randi holds an MA in Scriptwriting from Goldsmiths in London, and a BA in English Studies & Creative Writing from Malmö University and in Screenwriting & Film Studies from Bahçeşehir University in Istanbul. She is part of the alternative film school 18Frames.
She is a co-founder of the groups Bureau for Listening and AWFUL.
