INNER PROJECTIONS FROM A BROKEN MAN (Remastered 2022)

TALES FROM THE DOWN BELOW OF SOCIETY.

A SEMI-AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL WORK OF ART.

THE PRODUCT OF MY BREAKDOWN.

Each of these 1min. Video-Art pieces are windows into the life of the estranged people. – Outsiders battling depression and other mental issues or physical diseases, while living a life in loneliness and isolation in our society. These people are now knocking on your door and asking to come inside your life, your mind, your TV, your consciousness.
– Danny Germansen

After many years of positive progress and with the newly restoration work of these old films and art-videos. I finally realize that the videos made at the peak of my breakdown, tears down the walls of my apartment and show the world how mentally ill and isolated people live, thinks and feel. Show how the everyday life of the lonely people is. Those people that normally not appears in public spaces because of their problems and are hidden behind the walls in confinement of their apartment, so no one sees them or noticed them. I hope these films/videos can be used as information about those lost and damned people and help to an understanding from the public about these issues.

About the INNER PROJECTIONS FROM A BROKEN MAN (Remastered 2022) film Restoration work: The masters of these video-art pieces and experimental films are taken from old DV video tapes. We have tried to restore the films/videos in best possible way, but please approach the technical quality of the restoration with empathy. I still think these films/videos is an essentiel part of my complete film/video work and is therefore
