Gaspar Noé was born in Argentina in 1963 but he has lived in Paris since he was a child. He studied at Louis Lumière College, where he already began to shine with his short fiction films. It was his 40-minute film Carne, however, that first brought him acclaim. The film was continued as a full-length feature called I Stand Alone. His work is characterised by a sense of naturalism, the epicenter of which was the anal-rape scene in the controversial film Irreversible. Noé has won numerous awards at Cannes, as well as at other prestigious events.

Super 16 is the leading alternative film school of Denmark which over the last almost 20 years has graduated many successful filmmakers and films produced by the school are very often selected and awarded at various film festival around the world. The organisation is legally a union with a board of selected students, and Super16 functions as a community, solely driven by the filmmakers themselves. The education runs for 3 years, and every second year, the current students accept 6 new directors, 6 producers and 4 writers. The classes are organised by the students and no teacher work full time, but instead, they hire external teachers and experts from the Danish and international film industry, all depending on what the current students find relevant.
