TALES FROM THE DOWN BELOW OF SOCIETY
Danny Germansen (Born 1976) is an award-winning filmmaker and video-artist who was raised in a dysfunctional family in a little town on the west coast of Jutland in Denmark called Ribe.
Playing music most of his teenager years, Danny first started to work with video and film at the age of 21. His main body of work are inspired by a life with disability, depression and mental breakdown.
Danny’s early work with films has been used as therapy, a way to work himself out of a low point in his life from his 20’s up thru his 30’s years of life, where he was suffering from severe depression, mental agony, isolation and loneliness – Caused by his troubled childhood with two spinal surgery operations at the age of 9 and 14 which left Danny paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Plus having a psychopath father who made Danny emotional and mentally unstable.
Those early works that can been seen in the video collection INNER PROJECTIONS FROM A BROKEN MAN is emotions and thoughts from a mental breakdown told thru film/video.
But Danny does also do other topics as political, social-society and philosophical related work. Danny’s work has been shown around the world at festivals and various venues.
