Bille August is a photographer-turned-director whose penchant for weaving deeply personal stories eventually gave way to adapting seemingly impenetrable novels into moderately successful features.
August's career behind the camera seemed to be reaching a high point, and in 1987, he crafted the film that many consider to be his masterpiece, Pelle the Conqueror.
Though August ventured outside of his comfort zone to direct episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, he soon returned to the sort of human drama that defined his early career with the release of A Song for Martin in 2001.
