DAAN GROOT   |  director

MARTAN

The MARTAN film was inspired by the limiting stigma of spirituality. Together with photographer Jasper Abels, Daan Groot portrays an eclectic and hedonistic youth cult performing drug fuelled rituals of Dionysian nature. Exposing their ever growing bond in the flaming light of their mutual and somewhat sexual quest to explore each other, their spiritual being as well as their shared role in a world where religion tends to radicalize or disappear.
