The Club of Ugly Children
Paul’s country is dominated by regime, but its citizens believe they live in prosperity. One day, every student at his school has to pose for a photo. The children who will make the best impression on the president – the state’s benefactor – will go on a trip. The contest is won by five students considered by their peers as the ugliest kids in school. And Paul is one of them.
Jonathan graduated from the Dutch Film Academy in 2012. He made the children programmes, as well as a couple of short films. His first feature film ‘Fashion Chicks’ is a really colourful high school film. For ‘The Club of Ugly Children’ he created a completely grey world.
