    In 2014 she debuted as a director with the thriller Amnesia to good reviews. It did well at festivals and won the audience award at the Black Bear Festival in Poland. It received huge interest for the remake rights in Europe and the USA. It was sold to fellow Norwegians, the Oscar-nominated Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning. The American version is expected to go into production shortly.
