Christian Einshøj / Director
(b. 1985) is a self-taught director and film editor. He has worked on more than 30 films, some of which have won awards at idfa, CPH:DOX and Sundance. (And some which haven't.)
His second film as a director "How I Live, as You Wanted to Know" premiered at Hotdocs and went on to play at CPH:DOX, before disappearing into the mists of oblivion.
Since 2008 he has been working on a 5-part film about his unsignificant upper middle-class family, of which "Haunted" is the first installment.
