Decomposition film study

„SCHWEINCHEN“ (Piglets), a 20 minute short film, documents a decompositon study conducted by forensic biologist Dr. Mark Benecke under the artistic guidance of famed director Jörg Buttgereit („Nekromantik“). The score was composed by Andre Abshagen, Buttgereits frequent collaborator for several audio dramas and documentaries. Benecke commissioned Michal Kosakowski („German Angst“) with editing and producing the project.
