Born in 1977 in Denmark, he began to work in filmmaking as a scriptwriter for several short films first, then beside Danish director Thomas Vinterberg who chose him for two screenplays, Submarino (2010) and The Hunt (2012, winner of the Jury Prize and the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival). Lindholm made his debut behind the camera with the prison film R (2010), adopting a particularly realistic film style reminiscent of the canons of documentary films. In the meantime, he continued to work as a screenwriter for the famous television series Borgen, set in the power circles of Danish politics. In 2012 he participated in the Venice Film Festival in the Orizzonti section with Kapringem (A Hijacking), the story of a cargo ship that was attacked and hijacked by pirates in the Indian Ocean: the entire crew was taken hostage and the demand for ransom of millions of dollars triggered a psychological drama between the shipping company and the Somali pirates.
