Director Toke Madsen and The Animation Workshop Release “Mano” Short Film

Simmering with understated tension and atmosphere, Toke Madsen’s graduation film demonstrates a mastery of character subtleties and narrative timing while wrapping it all in classical light and impressionist rendering.

Mano was produced during Madsen’s third year at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, and features a soundtrack by Danish beatmaker and producer Telepa-T.

Toke Madsen: “On a slow morning near the outskirts of a Danish city, two brothers learn to take care of themselves.
Due to their neglectful mother, the older brother feels the need to protect his younger sibling from the struggles of a dysfunctional family.”
