Michael Graversen

Documentary Director from the National Film and Television School in UK. At the NFTS I found my voice within intimate and sensitive filmmaking that often deals with existential or socially relevant themes. I try to make films with an emotional depth.

“Dreaming of Denmark” (2015) marked the end of 3 1/2 years following the unaccompanied minor refugee, Wasiullah, in his underground life through Europe while struggling to find out who he is and where he belongs. The film was nominated for the F:ACT Award at CPH:DOX.

“The Last Night Shift” (2012) about volunteers keeping dying people company earned me a nomination for the Liv&Død Prisen in my native Denmark and “No Man’s Land” (2013) – a portrait of a Children’s Asylum Centre – was selected for IDFA and 25+ international festivals winning prizes in Theran, Hamburg and Belgrade. I have also had experience with experimental filmmaking with the abstraction “An Anxious Mind” (2011) that a.o. was selected for Australian International Experimental Film Festival.

I have a BA in Film, Media Studies and Psychology from Copenhagen University and have worked as a cultural journalist at the national broadcaster in Denmark (DR). My first documentary was “Toxic Ground” (2006) about pollution in my hometown, Grindsted. “Toxic Ground” aired on DR2 and was selected for CPH:DOX.

Diplomirani dokumentarista studije stekao na National Film and Television School Velika Britanija. Na NFTS našao je svoj glas unutar intimnog i osetljivog za kinematografiju koji se često bavi egzistencijalnim ili socijalno relevantnim temama. Trudim se da filmove sa emocionalnim dubine.
“Dreaming of Denmark” (2015) označio je kraj 3 1/2 godine od maloletnika bez pratnje izbeglica, Vasiullah, u svom podzemnom životu po Evropi dok se bori da sazna ko je i gde pripada. Film je nominovan za nagradu na CPH:DOX.
