Director Jonas Arby working on next film after WHEN ANIMALS DREAM

The Danish director Jonas Arby made a name for himself after the genre film When Animals Dream, and now he has announced his next project.

Titled Suicide Tourist, the film will be about an insurance broker called Max whose live revolves around keeping his walnut brain tumour in check.
