Christian Bonke

Director


BIOGRAPHY

Christian Holten Bonke was born in 1973 in Fredericia, Denmark. He graduated as multi media designer in 1994, and in 2005 he graduated as a director from the National Film School of Denmark. Christian is a Copenhagen-based film director. After having divided his life between his record label and his carreer as a film director he finally decided to devote himself to the moving image. Instead, he keeps applying his musical sensibility and knowledge of rhythm, atmosphere and modulation to filmmaking. He effortless mixes the genres of real life and fiction as you see in both his documentaries and in his commercials. The critically acclaimed film Ballroom Dancer, which Christian made with Andreas Koefoed was produced at Danish Documentary Production.
