"Motion Picture For Development"

The Sunken Convent

A man wakes up, he goes to work, he eats in, he does a bit of home surgery, he drives to the woods.

Told without words and loosely inspired by the tale by Hans Christian Andersen, 'The Sunken Convent' is a grotesque and slightly surreal story of bad habits.

Director Biography

With a background in commercials and music videos, Michael's most noticeable works are a string of music videos for bands like Napalm Death, Cephalic Carnage and Job For a Cowboy - some of which have pushed the boundaries of gore and good taste. He has won a number of awards, has been nominated for a Méliès d'Argent twice and screened at festivals like Raindance, CPH PIX and Animafest Zagreb.
