Johannes Nyholm (1974, Sweden) is an artist and film director based in Gothenburg. His work is usually presented in a wide range of forums. The animated film series THE TALE OF LITTLE PUPPETBOY (2006) was originally shown at, and made for, gallery screenings. But it has also been shown widely at festivals around the world, most notably at the 2008 Quinzaine in Cannes. His music videos were made for distribution on TV, but have also been shown widely in galleries and at film festivals. The music video TWICE, FOR LITTLE DRAGON, was the origin for the short film DREAMS FROM THE WOODS (2009), which also premiered in Cannes. Even before being completed, his latest short, LAS PALMAS (2011), gained a global reputation through a trailer more successful than any Hollywood blockbuster. The film also marked Nyholm’s third entry at Cannes and his first at Sundance.
