Danny Germansen (Born 1976) is a 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 him 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.

Director Statement

The film is based on the life of and talks with SUZANA LUNGU .

Its a futuristic tale ala GEORGE ORWELL´S 1984.

The idea sprung out from Suzana telling me about her life in Romania. Where she would work in her garden in her bikini taking care of her tomato plants and other plants that she will go to the market to sell. I talked to Suzana about having that kind of freedom where you live in the nature and are your own boss. That you don´t have to be a part of the system or society, but be more or less self-sufficient by living of the land and live a life outside the norms of society without all the martialist things people of the world need today.

Suzana made up the name ANTI-SOCIAL CLUB as a joke that she wanted to make a club for herself to be anti-social in.

So one night I was laying in my bed after a couple hours of sleep, not fully awake, but half a sleep, I suddenly had a picture in my mind. It was very clearly. It pictured Suzana in her bikini – Sitting on her knees in a garden working in the soil and the title ANTI-SOCIAL CLUB was written on top of the picture. From there I developed the story about human freedom contra the state/system/society and it stood very clear to me after having seen that picture in my mind how exactly the film should be written and produced.
