Biography[edit]

Jens Peter Hammerich was born on 16 November 1954 in Copenhagen to translator Ida Elisabeth Hammerich and Paul Hammerich, journalist, writer and editor in chief at the national Danish newspaper Politiken. From an early age he was called Rumle and when his father in 1959 asked her mother to translate Charles M. Schulz's comic strip Peanuts for Politiken, she gave the perpetually dirty boy Pig-Pen her son's nickname.

He graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 1979 and had his debut as a feature film director in 1983 with the children film Otto er et næsehorn "Otto Is a Rhino". After working in Sweden in the early 90's, directing films such as the horror film Svart Lucia and the children film Kan du vissla Johanna?, he was made director of national Danish television station DR's fiction department in 1994. In 1998 he left DR and the following year he joined Nordisk Film, where he led the subsidiary Nordisk Film Produktion until 2003, when he was made creative director of the company.[3]
