Torun Lian has written film scripts, plays, television series and books for young adults. Both her books about Frida, Frida (1990) and Frida - her heart on her sleeve, have been filmed and have won Norwegian and international prizes. Her prize-winning Bare skyer beveger stjernene (1994) has likewise been made into a film, in which she made her debut as a director, to wide acclaim from critics and public alike.
The film Ikke naken was released in September 2004, again with Torun Lian as director.
