Pia Jensen


Fiction in English

I am originally Norwegian but grew up in Mexico and decided to move back seven years ago. Currently I reside by the Pacific Ocean in Nayarit, in a quiet town where I have found tranquility and inspiration. Since childhood I have been fascinated by storytelling in all its formats, as literature, oral accounts, theatre, podcast and above all filmmaking. I started working on stage and devoured books and films through adolescence before embarking on my BA in Film and TV production (Edith Cowan University, Australia). With my degree I went to work for Norwegian television and radio, and then earned an MA in Visual Anthropology at Freie Universität in Berlin. Finally I felt ready to work on my own projects, writing and directing short and medium-length films and screening my films in international competitions and seminars. I am currently wrapping up a feature film script that I co-wrote, and that I hope to shoot next year. I am a passionate reader and an observer of human nature, which inspires me to write. At Under the Volcano I look forward to structuring my writing in order to write a novel about family ties, female lineage and personal relationships.
