Janus Metz was born in 1974 in Denmark. After a first short documentary in 2006, TOWNSHIP BOYS, he makes himself known thanks to his two TV documentaries LOVE ON DELIVERY and TICKET TO PARADISE. He had his international breakthrough with his documentary ARMADILLO which was awarded the Grand Prix de la Semaine de la Critique in Cannes in 2010, and selected for IDFA Amsterdam's Reflecting Images. The film has since been shown at over 50 film festivals winning numerous awards.
With his debut narrative feature BORG/MCENROE (2017), Metz made an even bigger splash opening the Toronto Film Festival.
