    When John returns home to his father after serving time in prison, he is looking forward to starting his life afresh. However in the local community, his crime is neither forgotten nor forgiven. John's presence brings out the worst in everyone around him and a lynch-mob atmosphere slowly takes shape. Feeling abandoned by his former friends and the people he loves, John loses hope and the same aggressions that previously sent him to prison start building up again. Unable to leave the past behind, he decides to confront it.

    Press

    A cold, controlled, minimalist drama.

    Alissa Simon, Variety

    Smacks of quality workmanship.

    Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

    A tale of education that is meticulous, bristling with tension, suffocating and irredeemable.

    Bénédicte Prot, Cineuropa

    I'm conscious of being a very emotionally blocked guy. I make films so that I can express myself through other things.

He has produced several short films including the documentary RADEK (2006) and the short-fiction MILK TEETH (2007).
