Logline

An artfully claustrophobic chamber play that references Franz Kafka and Lewis Carroll.

A nameless man is granted entry to a gigantic but secluded concrete building to read the water meters. Before he knows it, he’s trapped inside the building, in a gloomy labyrinth from which there seems to be no escape. Bizarre encounters with the building’s inmates turn his concept of reality on its head.

Jonas Kærup Hjort

Jonas Kærup Hjort is a Danish film director who lives and works in Copenhagen. His background was in theater, both as an actor and a director, prior to attending the National Film School of Denmark. He graduated in 2017 with his short film IN A MONTH, an absurd and darkly humorous look at the human condition. This earned him the FilmFunen Talent Award, several nominations at international short film festivals, and three prizes at the Ekko Shortlist Awards. THE PENULTIMATE is his first feature film.
