At seven o’clock in the evening there was a knock on our door…

Sort Mandag
(Black Monday)
1981

16mm film. Length: 25 min.
Adapted from the short story "The Inner Circles" by Fritz Leiber.



Currently in production:

I am currently working on two animations:
"Here" with a script by myself and "Up in the Gallery" from a short story by Franz Kafka. As my other animations, these are one man projects, and thus takes their time to get finished. At the moment I have no set date of completion.
